We booked our Manatee tour at Manatee Fun for the excellent reviews on trip advisor and the fact that it's private tours only. Our expectations were to be able to swim with the manatees and have a good time in the water and on the boat. And we were not let down! The experience was absolutely fantastic! We took an... More

What a great trip. It was my granddaughter's 8th birthday. Capt. Broderick knew exactly where to find manatees even though not many are around in the summer. Having a private tour of 6 was so much better than being with a group of 15! Don't miss this!!

OMG!!! Captain B was the bomb! He was fantastic! It was June and there are not many manatees around that time of the year, BUT Captain B managed to find them all! A fantastic PRIVATE 3 hour tour with great wet suits, snorkel, mask and PERSONAL service! Captain B personally directed us to each and every manatee due to the... More

We arrived at 630am for a tour with Captain Broderick. His tours are private which makes the excursion special. We saw several boats packed with other swimmers and the private tour is definitely the way to go to have the best possible experience. Capt. Broderick was so funny and made our trip special. His boat is comfortable and clean. It's... More

If you are at all hesitant about this trip, don't be. I was nervous to begin with, but once I got into the water and got used to the idea, I was blown away. We were lucky when we went because it was the morning after an unseasonably cold night and the river was FILLED with manatees. Our guide Captain... More

We took the entire family on this adventure and we were all totally thrilled and amazed! Captain Broderick met us in the parking lot with a smile and friendly welcome and escorted us to the boat. The boat holds 6 guests and with 5 of us we had the entire boat to ourselves, which is just what we had hoped... More

If you want a personalized, private manatee experience, then this is the excursion for you. Captain Broderick delivers a fantastic day on the water. Besides being an expert at finding manatee, he's just fun to hang with. Our kids loved him. He truly cares about the manatees and their environment. The private tour is definitely the way to go!

My 2 teenage kids and I had a phenomenal experience on this private tour. Captain Broderick made the tour enjoyable, informative and a lot of fun. Even though it was the off season for Manatees, Captain Broderick knew several spots where we could find the manatee and avoid other tour groups. It truly was a private tour. We were in... More
