"Captain Gary was able to put us in position for looks and photo ops of birds that most people can only dream of, especially in Cleveland. We were able to see a side of the lakefront in a way that you typically just don't have access to. It was an amazing experience!"

"Being out on the boat with Captain Gary was an experience like no other. I have had many phenomenal days birding but this trip on the lake was for sure at the top of the list! With Captain Gary's skills we were able to safely and respectfully get amazing views of so many birds. A trip you won't get anywhere else unless you are with Captain Gary!"
