HI Citrus; So glad you enjoyed Swimming with the Manatees - albeit it would have been busy around the Christmas Time because of the slightly cooler weather I am sure there were more manatees for you to enjoy! Thanks for the feedback in reference to the pick up location, I will try and update the website so it is a little more precise on the actual pick up locations, we appreciate the feedback on this. Have a wonderful week, Tori
