Fourth time. Still a charm.

Every time the family comes to visit from the frozen north, we go play with Captain Traci. She has an infectious personality and I cannot believe that anyone does it better.

Our group of 8 booked manatee snorkel our last day of a diving weekend and we had a fantastic time. Our 2 pontoon boats were guided by (I think their names were?) Anna and Erica. The guides were extremely relaxed, yet enthusiastic about the wildlife and local culture. The snorkeling experience with the manatees was unmatched! I had mixed feelings... More

Booked a private tour with Captain Traci last week and had an absolutely wonderful experience! The weather was proving to be challenging and we were delayed, but Captain Traci welcomed us in the shop and we headed out right at the appropriate time. She kept us safe and got us to the manatees before any other outfits! She is extremely... More

We flew done for the weekend and it was fantastic. We took the 6 hour private tour and it was well worth it. We had never snorkeled before but Captain Traci was so good at her job that it put us at ease. Not only did we see a Manatee - we were in the water playing with them. She... More

Had such a great experience today. Thank you so much Captain Traci. Saw tons of manatees and truly appreciated all your guidance and insight! It's obvious how passionate you are about these amazing creatures. Seeing dolphins and monkeys was a surprise bonus. :-)

Captain Traci was an amazing tour guide! We got to swim with lots of Manatees and was even able to touch them! Very easy to plan too :) will definitely come back with my kids some day!

I had high hopes for this tour and paid premium price as we had some family visiting that weekend. However the tour was very disappointing. We started in a run-down hole in the wall place in a strip mall on the highway. Our guide was terrible. Although she was born and raised in the area she did not seem to... More

Hi Kristina and thanks for your honest review... WOW I suppose you are use to the rich and famous tours, WE ARE NOT. THIS is a wildlife adventure, not a theme park. Our little check in location does not serve a Latte, but fresh brewed coffee and very clean rest rooms. I suppose you are the one that pays millions... More

This was such a great experience to snorkel with the manatees in their natural habitat. Captain Tracy was fantastic and so informative. You can see how much she cares for these beautiful animals and we learned so much about these magnificent creatures. It made such an impact on my daughters they are still talking about it non-stop. Thank you Captain... More

We went scalloping with Native Vacations, out of Homosassa, Florida, for 2 days! Traci was our fantastic Captain! She shared so much information with us about all kinds of wildlife. We saw dolphins, star fish, sea horses, fish, birds, a huge turtle! and, of course, scallops! We had an age range of 15-59, fun for all! Traci moved to several... More

Captain Tracy and the whole staff is incredible!! Best ever! They delivered not only a great interaction with manatees. The education on the wildlife was awesome as well! We had a private boat:) It was hard to find them since the storm she didn't give up! We found a lot.! We had a lot of Laughs with other boats going... More
