No two adventures will be the same as nature is constantly on the move. No cheesy rehearsed scripts here just guides well versed in their environment.
Let our guides introduce you to one of the earth oldest lifeforms, The Ctenophora aka the comb-jelly. This jellyfish does not sting. It swallows its prey whole, but don't worry, we aren't on the menu! Comb jellies have a defense mechanism to protect itself. Just like dad carries a flashlight to light up any suspicious noises in the dark while he's taking the trash down, Comb-jellies bioluminess to scare predators away when they are disturbed in the dark. These organisms have a propulsion system to steer them around the river, but we'll stop there, if we tell you too much now, we won't have much to tell you on the water.
