Today is June 7 and we just got back from a wonderful river tour with Captain Bob. Simply put, it was awesome! We saw dolphins, egrets, osprey, and heron. Captain Bob was very knowledgeable and we would do it again!

I have too actually, so I wore "seabands" on my wrists, and had no problems. They are sold at most CVS, Walgreens type stores. Bring some light snacks to keep something in your stomach too. Have fun!
