Very charismatic tour guide with hilariously crummy jokes. It was very awe inspiring to pass from earth to water, and from water to earth.

Excellent narrator on our 10am ride from the Science Museum on August 28. He had humor, great positive energy, and he motivated all of us to join in laughing. Very knowledgeable! Enjoyable ride and wonderful experience!
