Captain Scott was an incredible guide. He had info and activities for everyone on the boat. Some decided to go tubing, others were more interested in the local history he gave, and it was a lovely experience all around!

We had a 2 hour cruise with Jesse as captain. It was so lovely, and well worth the price. We had a nice small boat to ourselves, instead of fighting over a hundred people on a larger boat.
