Tour guide was terrible and did not know much other than a few corny jokes! The sunken boat crossings showed a few pieces of scattered rubble which offered little to the trip. Also the glass bottom let us see some types of seaweed and a kind of barnacle which the guide said was an invasive type. Best part of the trip was the Rock Island Light House and that too added little pleasure to a very boring trip! I recommend going up the coast a short distance to Uncle Sam's boat cruise where information abounds!
