Best Vacation Ever

  • Fun for All Ages

    Boating is fun for all ages! Whether you swim with the manatees, view the beautiful river, take amazing photographs, or go scalloping, everyone can have fun on a boating adventure. Kids love cruising down the river and seeing turtles, fish, birds, dolphins, manatees, and monkeys. On manatee tours, kids have a chance to jump in the water and swim with these gentle giants.

  • Escape from Technology

    Boating is a chance to unplug! Want to pull your family away from technology for a little while? Take a nature dolphin tour! The only need for a phone is to take pictures of your family along with the boat, beautiful scenery, and incredible wildlife.

  • Learning Something New

    Boating is educational! Kids can learn about boats, the river, the estuary, and the gulf. They learn about ecotourism and how to boat safely while still honoring the environment. Kids learn about turtles, fish, birds, dolphins, manatees, and monkeys.

  • Inspire your Child

    Boating can ignite a passion! Your child may develop a love or boating. You may be creating a marine biologist, conservationist, researcher, or boat captain! Show them a new pastime and let their creativity take it from there!

  • For the Love of Family

    Boating is bonding! This is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Your family will share stories, laugh, and enjoy the photos for year to come! We are glad to take complimentary photos for you so you can always remember the day.

    • FAQs

      Can kids swim with the manatees?

      Yes! We have wetsuits and lifevests of all sizes and can fit toddlers to 5XL. Your child will be fitted for a wetsuit and lifevest. We also have swim noodles and paddleboards to help everyone feel comfortable in the water.

      We are in charge of the fun but Mother Nature is in charge of the manatees! We seek out manatees, dolphin, fish, birds, turtles, and monkeys.

      Can we get in the water?

      Yes! Choose a manatee, fun-in-the-sun, or scalloping tours for time in the water. If everyone prefers to stay in the boat, we suggest a nature-dolphin tour where you cruise around the springs, river, and estuary for the best views and photo opportunities.
