We used South River boat rentals this past weekend for a bachelorette party and had the absolute best time. Special thanks to Captain Chris and the rest of the crew who were all kind, courteous, and informative. Definitely will be returning! - Gabby Cooper

Amazing day on the pontoon boat with our extended family. Graham was a WONDERFUL captain and host. He took us to a quiet area to swim, dragged all 4 kids in the tube, and slowed the boat so we could look at wildlife up close. Worth every penny! Highly recommend requesting Graham as your captain. - Meredith Bove
