An absolutely magnificent weekend adventure. There was kayaking, boat rides, camp fires, a beautiful breakfast and nothing but a good time with Oliver. He is a careful planner and ensured we had a good time regardless of the weather or anything else Mother Nature might have held in store for us. We’re already planning our next trip back!

We've had adventures on land, fresh water, and salt water with Oliver, and all have been characterized by his thorough knowledge of the natural world, reliable competence in the outdoors, first rate equipment, and gracious style as a host. It's pretty optimal to have a guide who is an accomplished outdoorsman and has a PhD in biology! We hope to return soon.
