  • An Unforgettable experience. They only can take 6 people out at a time, so it makes a much more personal experience. I appreciate how passionate they are about making sure the manatees are safe and taken care of. You meet at this location, get your gear and watch a safety video, then proceed to the dock. After boarding the boat, it was about a 10 minute boat ride to the manatees. After that, you simply hop in with your mask & Snorkel, wetsuit, and a pool noodle, and you swim around and observe the manatees. They often will approach you and you can pet them which is so special.
  • Best experience of our time in Florida. It was February, so high season for the Manatees. Captain Traci was able to get us in the same day. Most companies will try to talk you out of the afternoon (3 pm in this case). But I thought it was great. It was just my son and I in the water. No other groups around. Plenty of Manatees. Though we only saw a few because one decided to follow us around, so we didn't look around as much. Captain Traci had so much to tell us about the Manatees and other animals. The only thing I could have asked for was some photography.
