Hello, I was wondering if you supply wetsuits for the tour and up to what size you may carry in mens/womens. Also, if we have our own mask would we be able to use that? How long does the 6am tour last? Thank you.

Everyone on the tour will need a wetsuit, mask, snorkel, and pool noodle. We fill in anything you don't have. The six am. tour is usually back between 9 and 10am.
How many manatees you saw today and at what time

Response from HuManatee9 | Property representative |
^ On the morning tour. With conditions being so warm for so long the gulf is now warmer than the springs. You want to get out as early as possible to catch them before they leave the springs to feed for the day.
