1. Our Cozy and warm Heated Adventure Craft Cabin Yacht with an upstairs fly bridge is our # 1 sought after boat for our Winter Manatee Season! ( Not Available during our Summer Season as we take it to Chattanooga TN for beautiful River Tours.) This boat is heated with an on-board restroom so when yo see so many of our competitors guests shaking and shivering you will no why they are pointing at us! It has plenty of glass for a great view and also has an upstairs Flybridge which allows you to get out in the sunshine and everyone loves that it enables you to see more Manatees and a great birdseye view of the River!
Price: 3 Hour Private Tour $350.00 / 4 Hour Private Tour $450.00.

Our 2nd Boat is our 30 Ft Custom Built Heated, Shaded Commercial Pontoon Boat that's like a "Party on the Patio"! It is also a wonderful boat for those warmer days in which we open all the windows and let fresh air in! This boat has so much room for everyone to enjoy along with a great swim ladder that makes it easy for even someone
with knee or hip problems to be able to get in and out of the water! This is our only boat that is wheelchair accessible and is also the perfect boat for small children and seniors that rides like a Cadillac across the smooth water of the Springs! Both boats have an On-board Restroom and are set up with Wetsuits, Masks, Snorkels & all the equipment you need for your Manatee Adventure! Prices: 3 Hour Private Tour $350.00 / 4 Hour $450.00 for up to 6 People.
Our 3rd Boat we offer is our awesome brand new C Dory custom boat that is like a Limo on the water! This boat is a little smaller and is the perfect boat for couples or a group of Four to enjoy their own private tour at close to semi private tour Prices! This boat does have an enclosed camper top for the cooler days yet it can be removed to let everyone enjoy the fresh air when it is warmer. It also has a port-a-pottie but in all honesty on a 3 hour tour most people either don't need the restroom or tinkle with the fish!
2 Person Private 3 Hour Tour
$195.00 / 3 Person $245.00
4 Person $295.00 / 5 People
$320.00 / 6 Person $345.00
Last but not least is our 4th Boat which is our 20 Foot Deluxe Pontoon Boat! The prices are the same as our C Dory. Private 3 Hour Tour 2 People $195.00 / 3 People $245.00 / 4 People $295.00 / 5 People $320.00 / 6 People $345.00. This boat is the perfect Manatee Boat for those warmer days of Spring. We call it Back-Water-Blue because it can go under bridges to explore beautiful parts of the river where most boats simply can't go! This gives us an advantage to find Manatees on the warmer Spring days when many other boats can't! Although this boat is not heated and doesn't have a restroom it is a very nice Pontoon that when you compare it to the competition it is still one of the nicest boats on the water! So if you don't mind wearing some warm clothes over your bathing suits and tinkling with the fish this may be the perfect Adventure for you! Will even serve you some Hot Chocolate to help warm you up. Our 20 foot Pontoon can hold up to 6 guests but also has Special Prices for couples or groups of Four to give you that private tour for what many other companies charge for semi private Tours! So if you don't want to be on a crowded boat with a bunch of strangers yet still want an affordable price with an excellent custom tour our cool C Dory or our 20 foot Pontoon boat may be the perfect boat for your Manatee Adventure! All four of these boats take up to 6 passengers and if you have more than 6 please call us for all your options for larger parties!
