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 and monkeys right when we got on the boat. Captain Ron did a great job instructing us on where and how to swim up to the manatees so we wouldn't scare them away. The tips were great and listening sure paid off! This was an experience of a lifetime! Highly recommend it.

This was the best trip, we were the only people on our own private boat Captain Duane took us to swim with the Manatees and took us around to see all the wildlife and Monkey Island.

Charleigh E

We had such a blast with Captain Greg on our manatee adventure. He was very knowledgeable about the area and the wildlife. He even found manatees for us to swim with at the end of the season! It was the perfect half day adventure for a girls trip, family time, or just if you want to get out and do FL! Highly recommend Blu Heaven!

I'd give this company ten stars if I could! Captain Wyn was super sweet and accommodating on the phone to get me scheduled for a private eco tour for two. We live in Florida and have done plenty of boat tours, but this one was definitely one of our most favorite! Captain Ron knew exactly where to go to see all the manatees - I mean we saw hundreds! Most I've ever seen in my life. He pointed out other wildlife and told us more about the history of the area. We can't wait to come back again!!

We came on Christmas eve, and outside morning temp was in the 50's. It was just hubby and I. What an absolutely marvelous experience. Nothing can prepare you to be surrounded by these gentle giants. They were everywhere. Captain Ron was excellent, knowledgeable and friendly. Highly recommended. Personal attention.
