The three key traits I look for in a wildlife tour guide are being knowledgeable, having respect for the animals, and showing enthusiasm for the job. Captain Traci knocked the ball out of the park on all counts. We booked her for a private afternoon dolphin tour, and her genuine affection and concern for all the wildlife in the area... More

Absolutely amazing day with Captain Traci, an experience not to be missed. Seeing the manatees in their natural habitat beats any park experience. Captain Traci was very friendly and knowledgable, we have been out with her before, a few years previous and kept her details as she was so good. Thanks again!!

Captain Traci's manatee tour is the best around. I had an up close & personal manatee encounter! They are awe inspiring! Everyone should try this at least once & if you're lucky more than once!

We have been a few times on the tour with Traci and have always had a great time. This trip we brought my husbands parents hoping for yet another great experience. We had the most horrific weather, it started to rain just as we arrived and it continued throughout the duration of our tour, it was quite navy intense rain... More

There is nothing better than watching your kids have fun doing something they have never done before and experiencing nature at its finest. This was a wonderful outfit to travel with. The numbers were small the cost was fair and the guide was very experienced and very passionate about manatees. Very helpful in helping us locate and handle the manatees... More

We emailed several times to book with no response so ended up phoning her. Day of trip no one showed up the office was locked up. Lady in marina contacted her. We waited an hour for Traci to show up. She did not once apologize! Had a nice trip but the boat is very old and in bad shape. It... More

Never did this before, Captain Traci eased us into the whole process. Swam with Manatee, saw a bald eagle and a dolphin on our river trip on December 6,2014! Outstanding tour! She was so knowledgeable! Loved it!

The guides are great and so helpful in finding the manatees in the water. Made it a great experience for the whole family! Definitely would recommend and it was very affordable.

This was my second trip with Captain Traci and she has continued to set the bar for excellence in snorkeling with the Manatees! Her knowledge, expertise, and passion for sharing the manatee experience is beyond compare. After spending three weeks on holiday all over the US my friends found this the BEST experience of their holiday. It is so unique... More

Took an awesome "swim with the manatee" tour Friday, Oct 31, 2014. Captain Traci and her doggie Gizmo did a fantastic job finding the manatees so I could get in the water and swim with them. The manatees are such gentle giants. Also saw bald eagles and a dolphin. Captain Traci really knows the area and has 15 year plus... More
