Singing River Tour

and Lunch


Thursday  November 17th 2016

Singing River Tours specializes in eco-tours on a comfortable, covered 40' pontoon boat with the addition of original music! The tours offer education about the local area and its history, as well as the environment and wildlife along the beautiful waters of the crystal clear spring-fed Rainbow River and the dark, swamp-fed Withlacoochee River, in west central Florida. Your tour guide, Jon Semmes, is a professional boat captain and musician.


Jon shares his knowledge of Florida's ecology and history through story and song. What sets Singing River Tours apart from other river cruises is Jon's talent with guitar and voice. As a professional musician and entertainer, Jon has spent many years sharing music and stories with audiences large and small.

“Singing River Tours not only music, educational!!”

Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Our club decided to drive to Dunnellon and take the Singing River Tour. We saw so much wildlife. It is an extremely interesting tour that I highly recommend. The music was a great addition with some very funny and lovely songs of Florida.
