After trying to search for Manatees on Crystal River for two full days (spending huge amounts of $$ renting boats from businesses who gave us zero truthful advice) - I found this place through a local recommendation and it was the least expensive, most informative Manatee tour I found. The Captain truly cared about Manatees and creating an incredible experience... More

Don and Lisa are boat co-owners and provide a memorable morning of fun. They are knowledgeable about the area and about the life of a manatee. They provide hot beverages and necessary equipment. We watched them, swim with them, petting and scratching their bellies. This is a worthwhile and relaxing morning experience. RECOMMEND for kids and adults 🐬🐟🐋🦈

I booked this tour as a surprise for my boyfriend's birthday and Valentine's Day. He is new to Florida and had never snorkeled with manatees before. The staff was very kind during my preparation and gave me recommendations on places to stay. The morning of our trip I was concerned that we wouldn't go out because the other people with... More

Captain Don and wife Elisa did a wonderful job of providing us the best experience. They were very knowledgeable and did everything possible to make sure we had a great time. I highly recommend this tour as it is a great deal for a very personable experience with the manatees.

Lovely Sunday morning, quite chilly but Don and Lisa made it comfortable with wet suits, enclosed boat, and a heater. We had a few awesome encounters with manatees, one even hung out and let us rub his belly for 5 minutes. Don and Lisa were very flexible with us, allowing us to shift the start time and even offered to... More

I recently went on a trip with this company, and couldn't have been happier! Captain Don and Elisa go out of their way to make sure that the trip is enjoyable. The Homosassa River is beautiful, and there is so much wildlife to see. The manatees are the icing on the cake, they are so awesome! They are so gentle... More

I have gone with the Capt'n 3 times in the past few years. We have always felt it has been an exceptional value and a great experience. The area is much quieter with less visitors than other manatee swim areas and Don makes sure you get a positive, personal experience with the manatees. With a limit on tour size you... More
