I can't go on enough about how much my girlfriend and I loved this tour! What an awesome experience this was, from the boat ride out, to the snorkeling itself. Captain Colby is the perfect fit for a tour like this! He was personable, knowledgeable, and clearly passionate about his work. He had a vast knowledge not only about the... More

I took this tour with my brother and am going back with a friend in April. Our captain was Jess and Colby was the additional staff. They were both experienced and good company, which made the trip even more enjoyable. There were six of us on the tour and maybe 9 people at the spot (includes kayakers). The baby manatees... More

If you are looking to have a spiritual encounter with nature, then look no further. Captain Tracy was a wonderful person, and her passion for the manatee is palapable. These graceful creatures are a wonder to behold, and being in the same water, with them passing ever so closely to us, was a moment I will never forget. You just... More

My family and I had an incredible time with Captain Katy snorkeling with the Manatees over the holidays. It was mid-50s outside and 72-in the water (you will be freezing when you come out!) and we saw dozens of these amazing creatures. Captain Katy was a blast -- fun and full of information and knew right where to take us... More
