Sue and Captain Rick
“Mrs Sue and Captain Rick are terrific!! My husband and I LOVED the boat ride. Hearing all of Captain Rick’s stories and jokes was a hoot! Such beautiful views of the mountains along the gorge from the New River. Sue is so knowledgeable and gave us a lot of great ideas for other activities as well as places to eat. Highly recommend everyone to do this tour at least once!” –Amanda Tuttle
