If you want a non-commercialized, holistic and thrilling experience with manatees, we highly recommend Manatee Fun Tours. Our guide Captain Broderick, also the owner provides interesting and poignant stories, even a few songs. He did a wonderful job of coaching us in our encounter with a mother Manatee and her baby. We were a bit clumsy at first, but Captain... More

If you are considering adventuring upon a manatee tour then this is the one to do. From the moment you step out of your car the fun begins. Captain Brodrick is one of the most amazing people I have ever met and and is a bunch of joy, he is so enthusiastic and loves answering any and all questions. He... More

We took the basic private tour with Manatee fun private tours. We enjoyed the tour very much. We had the boat for our family of four, which was great and certainly enhanced the experience. Captain Broderick was a lot of fun and knowlegeable. He interacted very well with the kids. From the start he ensured that we knew what to... More

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!!

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
