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

We scheduled this tour at the last minute and without doing a lot of research...BOY, were we lucky!! Captain Traci is amazing. She's incredibly passionate and knowledgable. My three boys (17,14 &11) wanted to adopt her as their new aunt, she was so great with them. Though this isn't the best time of year for manatee viewing/swimming, she and her... More

Captain Traci was awesome. She was very knowledgable. Despite it being summer, we found a few manatees because of her persistence. It was hard to tell who wanted to see manatees more - her or us! She knew a ton about manatees and other wildlife. Limiting the tours to six is one of the best parts. We saw boats FULL... More

Captain Traci was wonderful and really cared about our experience. She made every effort to locate the manatees and extended the time so we could swim with them. She educated us along the way about the manatees and the surroundings. The children, ages 12 and 9, loved it and it is one of their summer highlight.

Native Vacations was such a fun company to adventure with. Captain Jessica accommodated me with the booking. I came with a large group. She was quick to call me back and answered all my questions. We had captain John on our tour. He was extremely knowledgeable and took us to the best spots to swim with the manatees. We saw... More

Great one of a kind experience. Captain Jessica was a perfect tour guide... She made sure we swam with manatees; even extending our tour by almost an hour. We eventually came across a few manatees that were active, friendly and stuck around us... Enjoying the belly rubs and interaction. Would do it again in a minute!
