This was a brilliant trip. I went with my two daughters (aged 7 and 16) and both loved it equally. Captain Rich was knowledgable and utterly charming. We saw manatees (up close) and a bald eagle. Really interesting to find out about these lovely creatures living in the wild. Would highly recommend this experience to anyone...

We recently took a boat tour hoping to see manatees, our captain Andrew said he had seen some recently in one of the mangrove pools and wow was he not wrong. His boat is equipped with an extra small motor able to position the boat right next to the groups of manatees, we counted around ten, very active on the... More

Our family loved this excursion. When we arrived, we were greeted by Captain Berry and guided to restrooms. We had captain Andrew jr and his dog Bella. He shared many facts about the ecosystem and the manatees. He answered any questions we had, and with a small child, there were many. He was very kind and funny. We saw about... More

Capt. Rich of Eco Tours is a very pleasant tour guide full of local information and knowledgeable in the waters off Port of the Islands. We saw and followed manatees who came right up to the boat and gave us a good view. The trip was comfortable and the waters were smooth.

I just loved this trip. Our captain, Andrew jr., shared his knowledge and love for this ecosystem with us. We couldn't have asked for a better guide! We learned a lot and had fun as well. We got to see both alligators and manatees, even a baby manatee! Our daughter was particularly happy to be allowed to steer the boat... More

Seeing a manatee is not easy but they make it possible. Our Captain was great. He took his time to answer any questions, explained some of the Eco system as well as what's going on with all the construction around Naples. We enjoyed the trip even though we only got to see one Manatee and no other animals that hang... More

Captain Kent for us too - what a gentlemen! We had a great trip and immediately saw manatees and a big alligator!! We had the boat to ourselves and Kent kept us entertained throughout even letting out 7 year old daughter drive the boat which she was thrilled about. Great value for a 90 minute trip at $100 for the... More

We LOVED our trip with Captain Kent! He was fabulous with our 9 month old and we saw many manatees. The highlight was the baby Manatee, he said was maybe about a week old, and its mama! He had awesome suggestions for how to get the best pictures and could see manatees way before we saw them. Captain Kent quoted... More

Had a great trip with Capt Rich who was very knowledgable. We were extremely lucky to see a female manatee suckling her very young calf. Also saw an alligator, a large school of snook, mullet and bald eagles. Brilliant photo opportunities. Polarised sunglasses were provided to make it easier to see the mantees. Would recommend.
