Many thanks to Captain Andrew, Jr. & First Mate Bella (who happens to be an adorable long hair dachshund.) We saw so many Manatees on this tour. Big, small, Mama's with their babies. We also spotted two American Bald Eagles! It was very informative. He taught us things we never new about Manatees, the Everglades in general and my parents... More

Like other reviewers we had also tried the Manatee Park in an attempt to see Mantaees in their natural environment, however with no luck. With just a couple of vacation days left, we booked with this company for the following day. We were running late due to wrongly calculating the distance and called, the response was, "don't worry, we will... More

After a highly disappointing manatee tour a little farther north of Naples, we decided to try again with this tour and were not disappointed. We saw maybe five manatees on our 90 minute ride along with at least one alligator. Captain David was friendly, beyond informative, extremely approachable and engaging. We learned so much and left Florida feeling happy to... More

Me, my wife and two sons had a great trip out with Captain David at the end of August when it is unusual to see many manatees around (the previous day we visited Lee County Manatee park and saw no manatees at all). Captain David was very informed on the manatees and the other local inhabitants along with the area's... More

We had a fantastic time on this boat ride! You are guaranteed to see manatees and if you don't you don't pay! We saw 11, including a mother and her calf! Captain Andrew Jr spent the morning showing us around and talking about the local ecosystems and wildlife, a very knowledgeable man! And his first mate Bella is fantastic, she... More

Ultimately manatees must rank as some of the most ugly creatures on teh planet but if you want to see them in their natural habitat, this is the way to do it. Great boats and very knowledgeable captain. remember to take drinks with you on a hot day!!

Captain Andrew jr is amazing!! We have toured with him 4 times and love every chance we get! He's very knowledgeable and we have never seen less than 7 manatees on each tour!! We can't wait until February when we come back so we can visit him again :) thank you for the awesome day Andrew...you know who we are!!!!

Wife and I were a little apprehensive at first simply because we have been sold a 'bill of goods' regarding tours so many times in the past. Much to our satisfaction, Captain David turned out to be wonderful! He was professional, extremely informative, humorous and very engaging. We highly recommend this company, especially Captain David!
