We made a last minute decision to go out looking for manatees. Like many of these "in the wild" adventures you're never sure (or guaranteed) that you'll see anything. We arrived at Port of the Islands Marina and met up with our guide, Kent. Great personality and wonderful tour guide! After only a few minutes out on the waterway, we... More

We just took one of these tours with Captain Andrew and had many sightings of beautiful manatees, including several moms with their babies. Captain Andrew was very knowledgable about the manatees and he knew right where to go to find them! His doggie Bella was an extra added attraction. When she would see manatees her tail would wag and she... More

Seeing the Manatees was on my bucket list and within 5 minutes of this tour I checked the list!! The following hour and a half was fun filled with Captain Kent educating us on the wonders of Florida and its precious eco system. We saw many more Manatees including a mother nursing her calf, Wow! The professionalism of the Captain,... More

The time flew and there was lots to see! Just beautiful! Bella was the best manatee spotter! I would definately call this a "MUST SEE" tour

We went out with Captain Andrews and little Bella. Both kept us very entertained. We also had some great luck seeing plenty of manatees. I cant even count how many we saw. We were lucky enough to see a baby manatee too. Highly recommend it. All I can say is go on this tour!!!

We went out with Cpt Andrew Jr and Bella. Had a great tour and talk about manatees and other wildlife, saw plenty of manatees, and a huge alligator! Nice touch to have a little dog as a first mate! Owner was accommodating as we turned up without a reservation but he got us out in less than an hour, overall... More

Our Guide was Captain Kent. He was very Knowlwedgable and pleasent. He also knew where to find the Manatee. We saw 8 or 10 Manatee including a couple of calves with their mother. The trip was informative and really well worth the price of admission. We would highly recommend this to those who really want to see Manatee. Thank you... More

The captain was very knowledgeable, pleasant, and friendly with our kids. The tour was fun, and we saw over 15 manatees, some of them even came right up to our boat. we saw some interesting wildlife and Manngrove trees as well. The captain brought his dog, and our kids and us loved the dog too.

Captain Kent was awesome!! We had just finished an airboat ride to see alligators so we just wanted to see the manatees. Captain Barry hooked us up with a shorter "manatee only" tour that was perfect for our kids and our timeline. Captain Kent was knowledgeable and great with the kids...knew right where to go to find the manatees. Great... More
