    Captain Jason and John are very courteous and professional. Captain Jason was very knowledgeable and engaging with the passengers. Enjoyed the cruise very much and do recommend it.

    This was a very nice trip... learned lots about birds and other ecological information. Captain/guide was very knowledgeable in his narrative and could answer any questions asked by the passengers. He was pretty funny too... which added to trip.

    We were lucky enough to see a mother porpoise with her baby. Captain explained how she was teaching the baby to hunt for fish... by bringing it into the shallow waters.

    The boat was very nice and clean, with a canvas top, if you wanted to stay out of the sun... or seats on the bow which gave an even better view.

    Would definately recommend this tour.

    Today was a great day on the river...this tour was fun and informative! The boat had some motor issues and the communication of when we might leave and why we were late were a bit sketchy. Once we were going it was fun!
    Booking through this site gave us a few minutes of concern, because we had not paid the taxes, our names were not in the normal place. It took them several minutes of looking at our paper work and making comments about not understanding...for them to finally say...Oh, there you are... that will be 16 more for the taxes we were 4 .
