We had a great time. A few of us were first timers so it made it special. Even though it was winter it was very good weather. The houseboat was nice and the host was very friendly and attentive which makes the experience even more relaxing....Thank you Foxtale

We have hired houseboats from Foxtale Houseboats twice. Foxtale houseboats are modern, clean and have everything you need onboard. You leave from Morgan and head down the river many places to stop including the Caudo Winery. Jodie & Dave make the whole experience easy and pleasurable! We will be back!

A wonderful winter experience on Foxtale 1. We has varied weather conditions and really enjoyed them all. The river and bird life was spectacular and some early morning fog was fantastic. Loved the trip and would recommend this for a great experience.
