Great manatee day!
, Apr 2022
Swimming with the manatee was such a fun experience. They are amazing creatures. Cody and Heather were awesome guides. Cody was very professional navigating the boat. Heather was very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor! A super fun day! We also forgot a bag and they called us to return it. That was so appreciated!

Swimming with the manatees and observing mother and calf. The boat trip down the canal was nice and our guides were very knowledgeable about all of the wildlife we saw on the trip to our location.
Can’t wait to go back

Amazing. Better than expected. Dakota and John were funny, knowledgeable, caring and just great people. They made sure we enjoyed every moment even my 10 year old that Dakota held onto the whole time in the water. Saw lots of manatees. Took lots of photos. Loved every moment.
Beyond Expectations!!!!

We lucked out and were the only two people on board and had the experience of a life time.. Hailey and Jim were beyond knowledgeable and made sure that the safety of the sea life were the utmost of priority. The pictures provided (for a very small additional fee) were everything we experienced. Still cannot wipe the smile off my face!!!!! Thank you !!
