We kayaked on Thursday, July 15th, and although Dave has no control over the wildlife aspect, we saw otters, eagles, seals, just about everything we wanted. Dave made sure we were all comfortable and knew what we were doing. He answered every question with the utmost patience and offered tons more information without prompting. He was really great and we just thought you should know!
