It's very hard to choose a tour provider with so many out there, but we liked the idea of a private tour for our family of five. So glad we made the choice to go with Capt. Broderick! As was mentioned in some of the other reviews, he meets you right at the pier as you arrive, and lets you... More

Captain Broderick is a kind, friendly, many talented captain that will do everything in his power to make your trip enjoyable. He was entertaining and knowledgeable as well as a very good artist and writer. He also found manatees when other charters were calling him for help in locating them. My wife and I did a private tour that was... More

My girlfriend and I went on a two-person private tour with Captain Broderick. The top item on her girlfriend's bucket list was, "Swim with manatees", so we had high hopes for the trip. After spending a few hours on the water with Capt. Broderick, we can safely say he EXCEEDED every one of our expectations. When he says "private", he... More

Our family of four went on a laid back, educational, AND entertaining tour with Captain Broderick on 7/15/14 and it far exceeded our expectations! Unfortunately, our tour started with some thunderstorms (that quickly passed), but thankfully his tour boat was fully enclosed and out of the weather. So, we were out of the stormy weather and comfortable while riding in... More

Family of FOUR went on the DELUXE tour 07/09/2014 I read many reviews pre-trip and didn't find many that answered the unknown specifics. We have never been on anything like this before and didn't know what to expect, so I am writing a two part review hoping to address some of those specifics as well as the trip overall. The... More

This was a wonderful trip! I was awestruck by thy size and gentleness of the manatees. The water was murky impacting visibility but the manatees ended up coming to us and the next thing you know they were right next to you. Captain Broderick was wonderful. He was entertaining with his poetry and very knowledgeable about these wonderful creatures. We... More

We had a private tour with Capt. Broderick scheduled for 8 a.m. on June 21. However, the week before, Capt. Broderick suggested that we get an earlier start. We met him at the pier at 6:30 to improve our chances of seeing a manatee. I could tell from the minute I met Capt. Broderick that we were in for a... More

We stayed 2 days in Crystal River and went on manatee swims both days. One day with a larger company that took us out in a group and the last day with Captain Broderick. We much preferred Captain Broderick. He really listened to what we wanted to do and we had a fantastic time. He is very personable and easy... More

We were on the tour June 9. The trip was amazing. We were able to see 4~5 manatees in clear water and swam with a mom and her baby. Captain is great and I would definitely recommend this tour to my friends.

My wife and I booked a tour as part of our 5-year anniversary trip to the west coast of Florida. We were extremely impressed with Captain Broderick's entertaining and informative manner, his knowledge of manatees and ability to scout for them and the overall fun atmosphere of the morning. We would highly recommend it, and can't wait to go back... More
