What a wonderful experience! Having family in Largo, FL there is not a lot that we have not done here. Each year when we come we try to repeat adventures we really enjoy but we also look for something new to add to our list. I have wanted to swim with manatees for many years, but for one reason or...

The choice of tour operators is overwhelming but if you are looking for a private, professional, engaging, welcoming tour look no further. We cannot recommend Captain Broderick at Manatee Fun highly enough. We travelled from Australia to Orlando and had one opportunity to see a manatee. Of all of the reviews we read we kept coming back to Manatee Fun.... More

This was a great family experience for us. Captain Broderick was very personable and entertaining. He made all of us laugh and truly enjoy the day and our time in Florida (with a 9 year old, (2) 20 year olds, and the grandparents, he was able to cater to ALL of us, which is no small feat). He was very... More

As virtually all the reviews for this attraction attest, Capt Broderick delivers fully as represented. We chose him because we value not being 'one among many' in a crowd of tourists. Being made to feel special, like we are the only ones that matter that day, is a good feeling, particularly if you wish a very personal interaction, respectful of... More

As promised we had big fun with captain Broderick. It didn't take long at all to find a manatee and get us into the water. He was funny and entertaining and we even were treated to his poetry and song writing skills. He even stayed late to find us the perfect one on one experience we hoped for since it... More

Capt. Broderick was funny and gives your money's worth. He found some manattees quick and got us out in the water next to them before any of the other tour guides could. He makes sure you have the best time.

We got out on the water right around 7 am. Captain Broderick took us the opposite way of where the big boats in order to avoid the big crowds. Within the first 20 minutes he found a mother manatee with her baby. We got out and spent lots of time with it. We found a couple more throughout the day.... More

Capt. Broderick was excellent. Because of a late afternoon flight out of Orlando, I needed to find a tour that would finish early, so we could get to Orlando. On the website, it shows the tour leaving at 8:00, for 3 hours. Perfect. When talking to Capt. Broderick, because of the time of the year, he suggested we leave at... More

Oh my gosh. We had so much fun. Broderick was waiting for us right when we arrived and we got right down to business. Learned the ethics of caring for these endangered animals and the proper way to treat them during our private time with them. Then we headed out and had our first two manatees within about 10 mins...

We chartered Captain Broderick's fine river vessel for the entire day and the experience was everything we wanted and more. If you have a chance to charter for the entire day, it is highly recommended as you have the opportunity to explore many of the labyrinth of canals and river ways, springs and natural wildlife habitats at your leisure.
