Maybe it was the wrong time of year; maybe it was the size of our group; maybe it was just the 'luck'. We only saw a few manatees--not like the pictures you can find online at all. The manatees were not at rest in a warm clear spring. If you want to see manatees galore go during the winter- cold... More

We had a great time on the tour and saw and swam with a group of manatees. The Manatee Tour and Dive team were fun and knowledgeable!

Captains Glenn and Matt were awesome. We had a great Thanksgiving morning swimming with manatees! They were informative and patient with our youngest daughter, who was terrified to swim with a creature of that size. Despite the cool Florida temps, we all quickly acclimated and felt comfortable just hanging out in the water with several manatees. Can't wait for our... More

There were several families on our boat. We all stuck with our teacher Bryan. We were able to see and swim with several manatees. Great fun. I recommend you do this, when I'm the area.

The guides were friendly, kind, and very knowledgable! We saw several manatees and were able to get very close! You can tell that the people here really care about the manatees' well-being and safety, and they are there to not only ensure you have a great time, but to make sure the manatees are comfortable and safe. The ONLY thing... More

My family came in for thanksgiving and we spent Wednesday morning with Captain Bill and his crew swimming with the manatees. They were superior with their knowledge and the ability for us to get up close and personal with the three adults and one calf. The trip was awesome, I would recommend it to everyone.

Loved the staff! Had a great experience! Beautiful place to kayak. Close to multiple springs. Got to see lots of wild life up close.

We had a wonderful experience with the customer service at Manatee Tour & Dive. The folks working here are top notch and passionate with their love for the waters, springs and MANATEES. Amazing group and cannot wait to go back to swim with the manatees next time!

Manatee Tour and Dive is a perfect adventure for those who like to swim and explore underwater. I would not recommend this experience for children under the age of six unless they are able to be calm and move slowly around the manatees. If you are calm you may even find yourself up close with a cute whiskery face. We... More
