Very pleasant way to spend an afternoon. A great "first date" or "casual friends" outing. Just enough time to rekindle a friendship, relationship or get the "kids out of the house". A great quiet Tennessee waterway outing for all ages to enjoy!

We had such a great time! We enjoyed the river, nature, and mostly the owner and captain made us laugh the whole time. So pleasant for adults and children. Well worth the money! Wonderful way to spend time with family and friends. PLUS I learned how to make a balloon animal :) thanks!!!!

Had such a great time on our Nature Cruise! Would recommend for all ages. Great for kids but we were a group of 20 somethings and had a blast! Captain Jim is a great host and we will definitely be going back!

The ride on the river was pleasant viewing the rural lands outside of the city. Captain Jim was very nice and attentive to his guests including several children who were aboard.

From Our Editors

A captain licensed by the U.S. Coast Guard, Jim Steele’s more than 25 years of boating⎯including time spent at the helm of Opryland’s water taxis⎯comes in handy as he coaxes The Blue Heron, a specially built 40-foot pontoon, about the Cheatham Wildlife Management Area on daily tours. Out on the water amid soothing birdsongs and the burbles of river critters, Captain Jim can be found behind the wheel of the craft, exercising his chops as an entertainer as he regales his passengers with chuckle-inducing anecdotes and factoids about local flora and fauna. With the comfort and safety of his guests always in mind, Captain Jim equipped the Heron with a restroom and keeps the vessel stocked with a comprehensive library of life jackets to fit adults, children, and pet iguanas of all ages and sizes. Hitting an average cruising speed of 5 to 10 miles per hour, the Heron affords its passengers leisurely looks at area wildlife as it embarks upon all manner of tours, from gold-tinged sunset cruises to kids' adventures punctuated by the gleeful laughter of curious youngsters.
