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

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
