I am a USCG Licensed Boat Captain and tour guide. I have been providing guided experiences on the Kentucky River for over 18 years. Our company has been listed as Frankfort's #1 Outdoor Activity for many of those years. Our bourbon tour experience is a little more limited, offering these tours for only 15 years! Our company has the most professional, people pleasing, humorous, knowledgeable, safety oriented, outdoor individuals you will ever meet! Our AirB&B trips all run with myself as your captain.

Nathan’s boat tour was a lot of fun. We learned about the history of the area and bourbon and Nathan included some thoughtful touches such as local soda and bourbon balls for everyone to try.

Lucky to have found the boat tour with Captain Allison and Captain Nathan. Both captains share captivating stories about the river and the city of Frankfort. And if it a hot day, and you need a rest, there is no better place than to be on the river with Allison and Nathan. 100% recommend this tour or any tour given by them while visiting the area.

This tour was amazing. My family ended up being the only ones on the boat so we had our own private tour. It was a bit chilly for Memorial day weekend but they had blankets and were prepared. The information was amazing my son loved it. Great job.

Very informative cruise down a scenic part of the river, incorporating the history of Kentucky. We went to the cemetery, a recommended restaurant and the capital afterwards to see what Nathan had described.
