Jason and crew were exceptional. His knowledge of the river made for a wicked fun day. This tour is a great way to experience the tidal bore come in. We also saw four bald eagles and their six foot nest. Definitely a bonus.

Our zodiac driver, Katie was great. She showed us the scenery, raced our boat and took us through the coolest waves. They had a variety of clothing. Quick check in. Warm drinks art at the end as well as clean showers.
