Plus, exploring with a guide means your chances of spotting the creatures are dramatically increased.

Great tour! Captain Bill was an excellent guide and while the Manatees were a bit shy we saw beautiful scenery and a bear fishing in the canal. Perfect amount of time on the water, 1 1/2 hours.

We (two couples) had a lovely midday trip with Captain John. Spotted a few manatee and gators, all augmented my some excellent dad jokes! Would highly recommend.

We had Captain Jim; he was fantastic and didn’t give up until we saw a manatee. He was very knowledgeable about the area.

Captain rich was our captain and he was delightful. He knows the area well and taught us a ton. We saw at least 7 manatees on this tour and a few gators. We will remember this forever.
