Do not waste your money! I spent over $300.00 to swim with Manatees. Not only did I not swim with Manatees, we didn't even see a Manatee. All we did was bake in the hot sun on a broken down pontoon boat. They never told us that it was the slow season but they were very eager to take my... More

We had gotten a deal through Groupon. We knew it was off season and the company was up front about the possibilies of encountering manatee's, being slim. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable and they were very organized about getting the groups together for the tour. They had 3 boats and could have easily fit all of the people on... More

We had a Groupon for this so it was a great deal. I read the mixed reviews but the price was great so we gave it a shot considering that when we called to book a month ago the owner explained that it is off season so we may not even see any manatees. We took the 7am tour with... More

We didn't expect to see any manatees since we went off season. DJ worked hard to spot a couple for us and we had a great time swimming around one in Crystal clear water! Then went swimming some more at Three Sisters, absolutely beautiful and fun!

This was ok. The woman behind the counter seemed annoyed and inconvenienced. It was a small shop which was ok. It only had one bathroom though. The captain though was very informative and wanted to make sure we really saw manatees.

The boat was very dirty and in poor condition. Masks and snorkels were onboard in a filthy gym bag, and no option of having a disposable mouthpiece was offered as at other types of diving businesses. Captain "Jolly" was inappropriate with his language and provocative subject matter from the minute we boarded. The only upside to this trip was that... More

My grandchildren, daughter, son in law and I went to swim (snorkel) with the manatees. What an adventure. We will do it again next year. Had a great time watching the gentle giants. Saw a family unit of Mom, Dad and baby....how exciting.

Owner phoned me the evening after the trip and informed me he did not accept groupon on Sunday, so we needed to pay more money. He was very rude. The guide was great, but the boat was unsafe and in terrible condition. It's falling apart.

Good people and great locations to get your open water dive certification. Call ahead and get the online portion out of the way and then get ready for a couple days of training, skills and lots of in water time to learn the equipment and proper basics.

I also bought the tour through Groupon. The day I went the air temp was 34 degrees. Captain Joe assured my group that the water was much warmer and it would be an great day for snorkeling with manatees. The time and attention given to explaining the manatees likes and behavior was helpful but the true love and respect for... More
