Norm is an incredible guide. I have been on many water tours over the years and King Fisher stands out as one if the best. Our kayak tour this morning couldn't have been better. Thank you Norm for a great time.

Such fun learning more about the waterways, marshes, birds and marine life. Norman is a great guide. He has a wealth of knowledge and he provides a perfect balance of discovery and education. The sunset was amazing and the temperature was perfect.
