Captain Dallas and our photographer/manatee spotter Hunter put us on our first manatee within two minutes of the start of the tour. Besides being knowledgeable, relaxed and super friendly guides, these guys flat out know how to treat guests. They had us wonderfully close to several different manatee in their natural habitat throughout the entire tour. We had an equally... More

I'm glad we were on a boat with just us and not 25 other people. Our captain took the time to find the manatee. It was toward the end of the season so there were few left in the area but we found them. It's a must do again.

I went with my sister, daughter, and son-in-law while I was visiting Florida. It was so much fun. They'd had that big hurricane in Florida a month or two before I went to visit, so I was a little worried that would affect us seeing some manatees. I shouldn't have worried. He made sure we saw lots of manatees. He... More

Booked a private tour and was worth every penny. We were taken to places where there weren't other snorkelers and had a chance to chat and learn a lot about the manatees and the surrounding area. We loved every minute! Thank you

We had a very nice time. The captain did everything he could to assure we had a great trip. We were able to swim with the beautiful, wonderful manatees. I am so glad we had this experience. It is a memory that I will keep with me forever.

We loved this tour with our guide Gloria! We saw many manatees and even saw one that was just as interested in us, as we were in him! The entire trip was amazing, the sea birds, turtles and amazing manatees. A once in a lifetime experience for my family!

After reading several reviews we went with Capt. Broderick and Manatee Fun Tours. Anyone who goes to see the manatee must understand that the entire area around the springs is not that large. There are many different operators and it is somewhat crowded. Capt. Broderick took us down some of the canals where there were manatee but not other boats.... More

We did the trip in July 2015. We had a thoroughly enjoyable time. There wasn't many manatees there the time of year we went, but we did manage to swim with some. Captain Broderick was really nice. My soon has Aspergers and he was really good with him, making sure he managed to swim with the manatees. It was great... More
