There are ample photo and commentary stops on your journey up the river. What makes this journey so special is that the scenery changes around every corner of  the river. Wayne is deeply passionate and knowledgable on the West Coast area from his previous life as a commercial pilot and from his time spent on the river.  As he says, it is a different experience even for him each time he boats the river.  What our clients say echo his thoughts and provide a very complimentary third point of view.
