Our guide was so patient with us novices and was so knowledgeable of the water fowl and other critters he pointed out to us. He was prepared, arrived promptly, and wasted no time getting us out on the water.

In addition to the great scenery, Jonathon is a great guide. His insight on the area and wildlife made it fun and educational. We have another outing booked this week and we will do more trips on future visits.
