The tour was excellent and I would recommend to everyone.

I had a great time. Corey and John showed us several manatee and proper technics when near these mammals. Very knowledgeable and they made the excursion quite fun. It was the best three hour tour that I have taken in some time.
A perfect Day!

So glad I picked this Manatee adventure out of all of them! Our guides Mike and Dustin were really great....saw lots of manatees and they took some great pictures of us that we love. Since we saw manatees right away, we spent time swimming with them and then had the time so they took us over to Three sisters spring where we swam in the crystal clear water. Both guides are very friendly and made our trip that much more memorable. Next trip to Orlando we plan on booking the scallop dive with this same outfit..."Plantation swim with the manatees." If you are overwhelmed with all the different manatee swim operators, you should go with this one because it couldn't get any better!
Fabulous trip, we will definitely go again when we can

Wonderful experience! Staff was great and the manatees were precious. We took the 7am boat and it was worth every alarm!

Beautiful river and very knowledgeable guides. We were at the end of the season in May but experienced a mother and baby. Great pictures and all round friend staff. Equipment and facilities were very clean! Would recommend for anyone who loves manatees

This was by far the coolest experience our family did while on our vacation, we saw and swam with multiple manatees, water is crystal clear and fairly warm as well. I would highly recommend doing this adventure.

Guys on the boat made everyone feel comfortable in the water and were very knowledgeable of the ecosystems in the bay. We were past viewing peak time but the guys found Manatees and got us VERY close for viewing. GREAT TIME!!
Worth it!
