  • What a mind blowing experience!! Captain Broderick and our guide, Tom, were amazing hosts. They took time to explain safety rules and appropriate interactions with the manatees. They were good-humored, professional and fun. It was obvious that every effort was made to ensure we had the best experience we could, with Tom hopping in the water to check visibility before we selected our swimming spot. Tom took plenty of photos that were available after for purchase so that you could focus on enjoying the experience of being with the manatees. It was a very cold day, and the hot chocolate was SO appreciated!! I will never forget this experience! Highly recommended.
  • Captain Broderick and Tom were absolutely amazing! They assured we followed all laws regarding manatees and we spent a lot of time in the water with the manatees while being very careful not to interrupt their eating. Both had excellent senses of humor, were very knowledgeable about manatees, and made sure we had the best experience! I would HIGHLY recommend this tour to anyone looking for a great experience!!
  • Troy and Skylar were excellent. The house boat was small and private. They were able to personalize our tour to what we wanted.
  • This company totally disregards the Florida Wildlife Commission (FWC) laws regarding manatee interaction. I guess they figure good pictures equals better tips. Their "in the water guide" who is supposed to keep tabs on swimmers was actually taking pictures of a swimmer hugging and petting a manatee that was in shallow water eating!!! This is without a doubt illegal. The captain turned a blind eye to what his water guide was doing. After I voiced my concern...then...the water guide asked the swimmer to stop. Are you kidding me...so unprofessional! I only use companies that practice zero tolerance and enforce the rules of passive observation...this is not one of them...companies like this harm manatees...which is not good for them or people who care about their well-being and want to interact with them the safe and legal way. AVOID!
  • One of the greatest animal interactions I have ever been on. Even though we went during the off season we saw five manatees. We went to four different spots. It was a magical experience.
