We did the 3 hour Manatee tour with Captain Ron and it was amazing! We got to swim with and pet lots of manatees. We were in the perfect spot...they just kept coming. We even saw some dolphins right when we got on the boat.

Captain Duane is a very knowledgable, capable, kind captain. He navigated around the river/bay to see as many manatees as we could. The biggest things that stuck out to me where his compassion to the manatees and his attentiveness to his passenger. If I were coming back to swim with manatees. This is the only tour I would go on.

Fantastic private trip with captain Matt - if there are animals he will find them. Highly recommend this trip if you want to learn about the area and see manatees, turtles, fish, dolphins and birds.

Cassidy S

This was easily the top experiences of my life. To be able to swim so close to such majestic, gentle creatures was unforgettable. Several of the manatees swam right up to our faces and loved a little head rub and then would flip over for a little rub on their flank. It was really a beautiful experience connecting with these magnificent creatures.

Yolanda P

It was a terrific experience, made even more so by the “Manatee Whisperer” who found numerous manatees and made the experience one of the best things we have ever done. We loved the company so much we then booked a dolphin tour in the gulf. I gave the score of 5 as that is the highest, but it’s to low, the score should be much higher, like 10 or 20.
