Captain Jessica was great as she took us to places where other tour operators do not go so we did not have to snorkel with 100 other people. It was a really chilly day, and we dressed for it, but a very nice touch were the blankets on the boat and the hot drinks waiting for us when we got... More

Had a great experience with the Manaties last weekend. Tour guide was very helpful. Only thing I would suggest is to dress warm as the water can be cool and the boat ride back to the dock can be long and COLD!

Lucky for us the group of 4 never showed up, so it was just my husband and I! We showed up early and no one was at the office because so we waited till 11:30 and saw a dolphin which was great. Just after 11:30 the office opened and we watched a video and put on our wetsuits. The water... More

I had one of my lifelong dreams come true when I went on this trip with captain Jessica. She was great even stopping to let us see some of the playful dolphins . I saw and interacted with so many manatees. Captain Jessica even called us over by where the boat was parked so we could really have some one... More

This tour/boat is def one I will choose again. After being on the water and seeing all the other boats filled to capacity with twice as many people than we had, it's a no-brainer. We had 5 people in my party. Only 6 are allowed on Native Vacation's pontoon boat! So, we had the whole boat to ourselves! What a... More

I cannot say enough good things about our experience with Native Vacations. Each boat only holds 6 passengers so it was a nice small group. The wet suits worked great being that it was only 60 degrees and rainy the day that we went. Bring spare clothes so that you are not freezing on the ride back. They do have... More

We took our 3 kids age 15, 13 and 11 on the manatee tour with Captain John who was great. We had a wonderful time! There were so many manatees to see and very few other people. We were able to interact with an incredibly friendly manatee who stayed with us for probably half an hour. He kept rolling over... More

Went out on a family outing after Christmas on two boats with Captains John and Jessica. What a great time. I rode with Captain Jessica and was very impressed with her professionalism yet friendly approach. She was a natural. No question how much they care about the manatees and the river. It was a little crowded when we were there... More

We had 2 adults and 2 kids (9 and 10 years old) go on the Manatee tour with Captain John. We all had a great time. The weather was cold so there were a bunch of Manatees in the the river. Captain John did a great job explaining everything and making sure the kids were taken care of and kept... More

We went out with John. Even in the pouring rain and cold weather, we had a blast! We saw many, many manatees. It's amazing to see such huge and heavy animals being so friendly and interactive! They come up to you and blow splashes of water up. Then to boat to another location, three sisters spring, and you can see... More
