Really glad we added this tour. We wanted to see closer in then we could with the airboat earlier that day. Captain Josh was a nice young man & pointed out that we were in a national park, not a national zoo, & that somedays there was more wildlife visible than on other days. Valid point. As it was, we...

Having enjoyed a fantastic tour with www.see-manatees.com earlier in the morning, we were looking forward to this trip. Whilst we saw some stunning scenery, Captain Bill was rude and downright grumpy. He was obviously knowledgeable but only mentioned anything about wildlife when asked, spoke so quietly it was impossible to hear from the front of the boat (only sat 6... More

My wife and I had a great time on our boat tour of the mangroves last week. We were lucky enough to see two or three alligators, a mother and calf manatee, as well as countless birds. Captain Josh did a great job as a guide and took the time to track down some manatees when he thought he saw... More

My wife and I enjoyed the boat ride. A nice breeze washed over us as we sat in the shade. Our tour guide/pilot was a compendium of information about the mangrove islands and the wildlife here. Very edifying. But we didn't see much wildlife. We spotted a bald eagle perched on a denuded mangrove branch. It watched us impassively as... More

We opted for the ten thousand Island tour which takes you through the islands to the Gulf of Mexico. The boat trip lasts for about 90 mins and was very pleasant. We saw lots of birds, but the stingrays, dolphins, turtles and manatees were nowhere to be seen.

We were here May 13th 2014. We were excited to take the boat tour and see the alligators, dolphins, etc. the whole "swamp" feeling that we were told we'd see. The lady gladly took our money and told us to enjoy ourselves. Our captain (Bill) was very nice but as soon as we pulled away from the dock he cautioned... More

This trip allows you to see the mangroves up close. The boats are limited to 6 tourists so you have plenty of space and other people don't block your view. Tour guide Josh was very good, although he kept warning us and apologizing if we didn't see much wildlife. Sounds like other tourists have complained, but folks, this is not... More

We enjoyed a mid-May weekday late afternoon tour. Fabulous time to go--after the "high season", and before the high heat and mosquito season! Amazing ocean/sky/mangrove vistas, birds and dolphins. Icing on the cake was the high tide which allowed us to quietly drift past a mangrove rookery where we saw a variety of seabird nests and babies, including pelicans. As... More

Our boat captain took us all the way out to the open Gulf waters, where we actually saw two dolphins surfacing near our boat, but they were too quick to photograph. The sea was a little choppy. Boy did we see a lot of ospreys nesting and what have you. It was better than I expected. The whole trip took... More
