The ride was beautiful - great explanations - we learned a lot about the electric power plant and about the animal world. To our delight we saw a white-tailed eagle. In between a lot of fast maneuvers with daring corners, we laughed a lot. Thank you for the nice afternoon.

Absolutely great trip. There was some action even though there were no waves to jump on. A lot of local knowledge from the guide is recommended
