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

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
