We hold our repeat clientele for good reason… Here’s why!  We have maintained from the beginning a “hard work pays off’” mentality! Bryce Collins is a United States Coast Guard Captain and a Licensed/Insured New York State Guide who has 20 years experience fishing & boating on Lake Champlain and its Tributaries. 

“We spent a beautiful afternoon learning about Lake Champlain and seeing some great sights. My group was a bachelorette party looking to do something different & this was a great choice. Bryce was knowledgeable and answered all of our questions about the surrounding area. We stopped by the beach and some coves and had a chance to get in the water. He tailored the ECO-Tour to suit our wants and needs for our girls weekend away! I would definitely recommend EVO for fishing as well- even though I don’t fish, the boat was nice with all the modern & awesome gear on it!”
 
Gabrielle Slapkowski, New York

“My friends and I rented a cabin nearby for a bachelorette party and were looking for something fun to do when we came across Bryce’s tours. We did the 2 hour eco tour and had an amazing time! Bryce was very knowledgeable and funny. He took us to some great spots, we went swimming and just had an amazing time! Can’t wait to come back and try one of the fishing tours! Thanks again for making our bride to be feel special!”
