To Captain Mike, the St. Johns River is home.
Your Tour Guide, Captain Mike, is a 5th generation Floridian. His lineage includes the original settlers in east central Florida and St. Johns River area. Proud to be a part of a family that raised cattle, operated and owned sawmills, and planted and harvested orange trees, Mike spent his whole life hunting, fishing, and camping along the river with his father and grandfathers. These irreplaceable experiences have given Mike extensive knowledge of the landscape, plants, birds, and animals in and around the St. Johns River.
