We emailed several times to book with no response so ended up phoning her. Day of trip no one showed up the office was locked up. Lady in marina contacted her. We waited an hour for Traci to show up. She did not once apologize! Had a nice trip but the boat is very old and in bad shape. It... More

Never did this before, Captain Traci eased us into the whole process. Swam with Manatee, saw a bald eagle and a dolphin on our river trip on December 6,2014! Outstanding tour! She was so knowledgeable! Loved it!

The guides are great and so helpful in finding the manatees in the water. Made it a great experience for the whole family! Definitely would recommend and it was very affordable.

This was my second trip with Captain Traci and she has continued to set the bar for excellence in snorkeling with the Manatees! Her knowledge, expertise, and passion for sharing the manatee experience is beyond compare. After spending three weeks on holiday all over the US my friends found this the BEST experience of their holiday. It is so unique... More

Took an awesome "swim with the manatee" tour Friday, Oct 31, 2014. Captain Traci and her doggie Gizmo did a fantastic job finding the manatees so I could get in the water and swim with them. The manatees are such gentle giants. Also saw bald eagles and a dolphin. Captain Traci really knows the area and has 15 year plus... More

Our Captain Traci was great, Traci was very knowledgeable about the Manatees. Traci took time to teach us about these fabulous animals and take us to various locations to view them. The most memorable part was when she stopped and allowed us to view a mother with her calf. While the mother took a nap we were able to play... More

A must-do experience. Captain Jessica taught us to let the manatees come to us rather than chase after them, providing us with a remarkable and touching encounter. We saw 5 manatees, including a mother and calf, despite being not quite in season, and explored the Three Sisters and Jurassic springs. Do this while you can, because swimming with the manatees...

What a great day! We found out about 'swimming with manatees" completely by accident and decided it was something we had to do on our Florida vacation. It took us several calls over the next day and a half to get through to someone which was a bit discouraging but I am so glad we kept trying! . We were... More

I'm so glad we went with Native Vacations for our "swim with the manatee" tour. After looking up at least 1/2 dozen places, Native Vacations sounded like the best place for our manatee swim. When I called to book they didn't have the time that we needed for that day. We were on our way to Disney and couldn't book... More
