Shannon is a captivating storyteller! His stories are a mix of history and a little speculation to ponder , both somber and intriguing. I highly recommend his after hours tour ,Bonaventure is eerily beautiful by flashlight

This was the most informative tour I've ever taken. I can't say that I know a Subject Matter Expert more versed in their field(pun) than Shannon Scott. This was the coolest tour of our trip FOR SURE.
