The River Lilly is a 34-passenger pontoon boat, licensed by the U.S. Coast Guard and owned by Dana and Deena Wade. Dana is a U.S. Coast Guard licensed Captain.
Visitors and residents alike have been enjoying the Wades' nature trips on the St. Lucie Aquatic Preserve for more than 13 years. Living in St. Lucie County for 30 years, the Wades are active long-time members of the St. Lucie Audubon Society.
The cruise, on parts of the river so wild they were used in the James Bond film Moonraker to represent a tributary of the Amazon, is on the same waters used by early settlers and Native Americans. Each trip is different, but you're sure to see alligators, turtles and lots of native birds, maybe even playful otters or gentle manatees.
