Little history-Been to the island 8 times/kayak' in my younger days(lakes & rivers only) cause I'm scared to death of ocean, have tried to snorkel but have had panic attacks every time I put my face in water-BUT I wanted to do this-John was AWESOME-@ 1st he wanted to try convince me I could snorkel but once he heard history he accepted that it wasn't something I hadn't tried & that I really was just happy to master the fear of the ocean by getting out on the water in a kayak & he went out of his way to make sure I was having fun hanging out on the surface! Really great experience, John was so much fun and informative. Never felt like it was "just a job" to him, he really made us feel that it was important to him that we have fun & he was having as much fun as we were. My husband & I are self employed with over 20 employees. Hope you are proud of him as your employee as he represents your company very positively!
