The entire boat ride was narrated by a professional. Captain Jim told us that this is his summer job, and that he is a middle school teacher. How I wish that he were my middle school teacher some 40 years ago! Jim gave us information about not only the history of the region, but scientific information as well. The boat ride was enjoyable in all ways. The beauty of the canyon was shown to us from every angle. When wildlife was spotted, Jim turned the boat 360 degrees so that all on the boat could see. The cost of the tour was very inexpensive compared to other boat tours that we have taken on the Great Lakes, or other history tours. If you have an interest in American History, and are in the Helena area, check out this tour. If Captain Jim is your captain, you will leave with an appreciation of that area that you did not have before you came there.
