I thoroughly recommend this trip, it was excellent and Captain Dave very knowledgable, he was informative and pitched the info at all levels for adults and children In a humorous way. We were incredibly lucky and saw 8 manatees, a fantastic experience in a beautiful setting.

We went on the the manatee tour, and had a blast seeing manatees in their natural habitat! We also go to see a couple of gators! Captain Andrew Jr, was very knowledgeable and personable! We would highly recommend this tour to anyone we know that would visit the Naples area!

As in Germany there aren't any wild manatees, we were eager to see some in their natural habitat. We just started and already saw a group of five manatees close to our boat. Thanks to the special sunglasses provided on board, we were able to see them clearly. Later on, there were a cow with calf and also some other... More

My family and I went on the 1.5 hour manatee-Eco-tour, and were very pleased. We had Captain Andrew Jr. and were VERY impressed. He was extremely knowledgeable about not only the wildlife but about the entire area in general. We did not see manatees until late in the trip, but it was definitely worth it. Once we did find them... More

I took this trip with my partner and baby, with the 'guaranteed' sightings the main reason. Despite the not-so-clear pricing policy, we started the trip with the knowledgeable Captain Andrew. He was very informative about the wildlife in the area and the habitat and was very easy to talk to. However, this was a manatee-sighting trip. After more than an... More

Date Visited: Wednesday, July 2, 2014 Pros: Great tour and guide, manatees Cons: Little hard to find We had never seen manatees in the wild before, and thought we’d take a chance with this cruise. It only goes around the back waters, not the Gulf, but that’s the best place for viewing these creatures. There are only about 6 people... More

Capt. Andrew was very knowledgeable. We saw lots of manatees and a baby manatee. Along with a bald eagle and alligator and a white ibis. Make sure you ask for him. He will show you a great time!

My family of four loved this tour. Captain Barry was very knowledgable about the manatees and the eco system. We saw several manatees and even a baby one! The skies above were threatening, but the storms held off. But the boat is covered so it is ok to go in rainy weather! Captain was as excited to see the baby... More

We arrived at 9:45 and our Captain was already waiting for us. Captain Kent was very friendly and also spoke to me one on one, it was a really nice morning activity. I would highly recommend it for families as well. We saw about five manatee, a bald eagle and an alligator on our 90 minute boat ride. We were... More
