I went on a super cold day, so there were tons of manatees out and about and maybe 8 or 10 people in the water. It was overcast, so the water wasn't as clear, but still had plenty of one on one with several manatees....More

Travelled from Ireland to swim with the manatees (something we had been planning for a couple of years) and it didn't disappoint. Captain Peter and Katlyn were amazing, couldn't have asked for anything more!already looking forward to another visit!!!

Well I have to say this experience was worth the over three hour commute from Port St Lucie. Myself and my sister had a private tour of the manatees habitat and snorkeled with them up close and personal. Absolutely amazing and beautiful creatures. Our captain...More

We had a magnificent afternoon with Ethan and Hunter and saw many manatees and womanatees (and two babies!). They were brilliant guides and should both be given raises. We will definitely visit again!
