Manatees were so huge and swam passed me a few times. My husband and I really loved snorkeling and learning about the area we were at. Christian and Bryan did fantastic as our captains and tour guides. Would love to come back.

It was okay, would recommend going during low tide. Snorkeled in nasty green water, could hardly see the manatees. The captain was amazing though, super nice and friendly. I personally would never do it again

This experience was one we will never forget! My husband and I took our teen boys on an adventure filled vacation. One of the boys said that swimming with the manatees was “hands down the coolest thing” he had ever done.

Captain Cory was great! He had an knowledgeable answer to each of my 50 million manatee questions. He did a great job of getting us close to the manatees while keeping us and the manatees safe. He also took some great photos that we bought on a thumb drive after the trip. Captain Ray drove the boat. They worked together as a team to make our experience fantastic even with threat of the set storms looming.

we had so much fun. they said the manatees are more present during the winter but summer is their favorite time to give tours since there are fewer people and the water is warmer. our tour guides were funny and made sure we got great pictures with the manatees

A spectacular experience, very nice to see the manatees in their habitat. The only complaint is that it is expensive if you want the photos taken. The tour is already expensive and if you want the photos you have to pay $42.50. Too expensive the cost of 1 photo that was what they took of me.
