Had a great time on this this out trip. Saw some amazing wildlife, and mad some great memories.
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!
John our guide was fantastic! Made the excursion a lot of fun. Wish the excursion was a little longer though but overall I would recommend it!
