Great guide, captain, and store staff. Highly recommend! They catered to all ages, my kids, adults, and even grandma. We were able to get close to a resting manatee and did not feel rushed.

Good experience, but a little deceiving.

We saw 1 manatee, we had to share our time with other companies doing the same thing. The pictures online were deceiving about the experience. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and nice.

Zach & Alex were amazing!! It ended up being my husband and I only for the experience and it was so enjoyable! The two of them made sure to keep us entertained and educated and making sure we got the best out of the experience! Zach did so well with showing us places around and helping us be comfortable around the manatees, the best part of our honeymoon!

Explorida: great staff, all skilled, courteous, helpful. Very well-organised trip - all made easy by the boat crew. Not rushed, plenty of time in the water even after having to initially find the manatees. Found a mother and calf: wonderful! Good under water and in-water photos taken throughout. Zach kindly dived right down into a cave mouth to take a tour group shot! Altogether a GREAT experience: recommended.

Getting to be so close to these magnificent creatures in their natural environment was an amazing experience I'll never forget. Tyler and Brodey were great. I liked the small group of 6 people. I was hoping for photos with the manatees, but I guess you can't have everything.

Our tour guide Zach was amazing! Life changing even😊. Chris our captain found a single manatee that we were able to observe which was so amazing for us. But he didn't give up and took us to another cove where Zach counted 23 manatees it was beyond I our expectations! It was a perfect day and a check off my bucket list. I highly recommend thus tour and Zach and Chris as your team!

Bucket list experience. Our tour guides were informative, helpful and fun. They persisted in looking and found amazing numbers of manatees for us to hang out with in the water. It was magical.

I took this swim my 14 year old son. We were both pretty amped up about it. We only saw one manatee due to the warmer weather, but she was so big, beautiful and peaceful to watch munching in the grass. We floated with her for 15 minutes or so before a boat spooked her off. It was fantastic! I can’t wait to go back and experience more. Brody and Mandy were so knowledgeable as well. We learned a lot about manatees and their behaviors and even got some local dining suggestions as well.
