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

Fantastic trip with Captain Traci! I went with my grandmother, she didn't tell me until after that she didn't know what a manatee was and was very nervous (she only did the boat ride). Captain Traci made her feel comfortable and she hasn't stopped talking about the trip since. Being in the water with the manatees was an amazing experience,... More

What a wonderful day we had! Captain Traci was a perfect guide, she explained the procedure then we watched a short movie on our safety and the safety of the manatees. I'm not a swimmer but she made me feel relaxed & the swim was unforgettable!!

What a wonderful way to spend a morning with my daughter and grandsons! Capt. Traci's enthusiasm for all things aquatic is infectious. She is a book of knowledge that makes it a pleasure to learn. The manatess are gentle giants and very interesting to observe. Native Vacations is very concerned with the conservation of the manatees and take great care... More

My husband and I took my niece to snorkel with the manatees a few weeks ago. We had a great time. She really enjoyed it, she said it was her favorite activity the whole time we spent with her. Our captain was Tracy, the owner of the company. She was so passionate about what she does. It was refreshing to... More

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
