Amazing trip! Saw multiple manatees and alligators too. Just an fyi, the manatees mostly look like big blobs in the water. Still cool to see though. Our captain was knowledgeable, capable and had a great sense of humor!

We had a great time on this boat tour! Our tour guide, Tristan, was wonderful and had many great stories and a lot of insight to share with us. We got to see a group of manatees, a few alligators and a bunch of birds. It was a great experience! We'd love to do it again!

No manatees, still a nice boat ride.

We went on the tour hoping to spy some manatees. We didn’t. The boat ride was beautiful though. The only water critter spied was the gator that lives at the marina. We weren’t offered the glasses that supposedly help you spy critters in the water better, which was the only negative. We were offered a free return trip since we didn’t see any manatees, which was a nice touch though it was our last vacation day.

We were looking for a tour to see the manatees and this was a perfect tour. We were in a small group and the guide was very knowledgeable about the area, the manatees and alligators. We got the opportunity to see several small groups of manatees along with some alligators.

A very relaxing ride through the red mangroves. The small boat allowed us to get up close to the manatees. Captain Alan educated us about manatees and the other wildlife while expertly navigating to the best spots.
