The whole experience was amazing. It was wonderful to have “Nancy” eat right under my belly and to watch her swim up for air. Truly a once in a lifetime experience.

We had the best time, Ashley and Tom were fantastic! Our small group of seven (7) spent almost an hour passively observing a pregnant momma manatee, it was such a magical experience! As a bonus we went swimming in one of the first magnitude springs and observed a couple of huge tarpon by the docks. So neat!!

We had a fantastic trip. Two middle aged mamas down in FL for a trip with out 11 year old daughters. Ashley was a great guide. Fun, informative and modeling compassion and respect for these amazing creatures. We loved it and will go out in the world as advocates for the manatee!
