Alex,the owner, was already at the launch site with kayaks ready even though we were early and expecting to wait. We wanted a backwater experience that was away from other boats, people and noise. This trip delivered. We followed dolphins feeding in the shallow waters, passed egrets, herons and cormorants. Eagles and osprey soared overhead. Alex a adapted the trip to our skill level and never was impatient with our endless questions. He challenged us but always kept a watchful eye. He is a wonderful guide and all skill levels will get their money's worth with him in the lead.
