Captain Gill Autrey welcomes you to come onboard "Lily" and explore the pristine waters of the lower Apalachicola River. The lower Apalachicola consists of the larger, dramatic expanses of the main river channel and its smaller, wild and scenic tributaries which form the delta: the St. Marks River, Little St. Marks River, and East River. Enjoy your cruise from Lilly's safe and comforable cabin. Lily is a seaworthy, 28' Adventure Craft. Lily also has all the amenities to make your cruise a pleasurable one including air conditioning and a fully private head. Captain Gill's River Cruises offers charter cruises of 2, 3, and 4 hours duration 7 days a week, each featuring the natural beauty and abundant wildlife of the lower river. Cruises available include; family outings, picnics, swimming, photography, sightseeing, eco-tours/local folklore, weddings/events, and sightseeing/sunbathing from the upper deck. Fishing charters are also available. And, of course, pets are welcome. Captain Gill will be happy to assist you in planning a cruise of your own design and duration.
