I recommend the three hour tour.. bought off groupon, 2 people for 30 bucks. The guide was knowledgeable. Got off the boat onto the island and was able to see alligator wrestling and get my picture taken with a parrot (no extra charge unless u tip the alligator wrestler) food and drinks were reasonable.

Went to 2 waterway tours. You see all the beautiful properties on the water owned by famous people. The tours are narrated, and you can even stop for lunch. It was well worth the time.

Water taxi offers great views and descriptive talks along most of the waterway. Boats can be rented as well. However, weekends outside of Manatee season mean lots of areas of chop from big boats going fast. It can be dangerous and uncomfortable for the newbie in a small boat. Lots of restaurants lining the waterway.
