"My thanks to the entire crew of this marvelous cruise.  I have been working as an environmental officer for almost 28 years and the marine biologist and crew taught me a thing or two.  The enthusiasm and customer friendly attitude  of the entire group made this a great adventure.  If anyone is looking for a wonderful way to spend an afternoon, and learn something about shells at the same time, this is your trip."
