    Captain Reed responded quickly and was really easy to get ahold of to answer my many Pre-trip questions. He was friendly, knowledgeable and respectful. I have two children, ages 6 and 8, and he was great with them. I openly admit that I am hard to please, but Captain Reed exceeded all of my expectations. We can’t wait to head out on another adventure with hi !
