To be fair, yes it was a good orientation talk - the video was a hoot though.

Very good observation - you've spotted the difference between privates and guided trips. The distinction is that guided trips are usually on a tight schedule so for them its better to stay in the water and get flushed along until you can be pulled back into the boat with minimal delay. For private trips you want to swim to shore, then you can hike down to where your boat finally landed and everyone can stand around having a beer and laugh about how you got chundered in that hole, the look on your face when you finally came back up, etc.
