We had the best time on our tour with Captain Alvin. He even told us a great place to go have lunch.

Captain Rich was fantastic and very informative but we went with two small children and it wasn't good for them they got bored not the captains fault just not enough happening for them, we did see some manatees, Dolphins and an extremely close encounter with crocodile in the dock which was amazing πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜†

Just returned from a 1.5 hour tour finding manatees and osprey. Captain Rich really can deliver information about manatees. He found quite a few in the close-by marina. There were even a mom and baby. Additionally, the tour included a short trip down a channel to find the osprey nest, the parents and a baby. Great tour....lots of information....well priced....

if you want a lovely relaxing hour and a half across the water, look no further. We saw alligators, lots of manatees and other birds. Captain Andrew, and of course Bella, was informative entertaining and really friendly. highly recommend.

I am so glad we found the manatee sightseeing boat ride! It was grandkids last day (10 & 7 years old) - We had the best time. Manatees, alligators, eagles, and other wildlife. Our captain/tour guide was great! My grandkids told me to ask for him the next time we go...his name was Kent. Thank you, Kent for a wonderful... More

Went our at 9:15 am. Capt. Andrew was relentless in his pursuit of manatees. Did not disappoint. Even though they are typically not awake at that hour, we saw two sets of mother/baby pairs. We also saw alligator and dolphins. Beautiful tour of west Everglades with a knowledgeable host. Comfy, covered boats. Short drive from naples. A must for families!

We had the boat for the three of us, so 360Β° views all the time. You don't go out far from the marina, but there a few lovely spots closeby. We saw many manatees, and a few alligators too. Because we had our trip close to noon, it was to hot to see birds. Capt. Andrew Junior is a very... More

We stopped, by chance, in an effort to see the manatees. We had been on several other tours in the everglades, Sanibel and Fort Meyer and nothing came close to the experience Captain Barry provided. He knows how to make it fun and educational for all ages. He can engage children in a very unique way sharing his enthusiasm for... More

Great tour! Capt. Andrew, Jr. made sure we were satisfied with the number of manatees we saw before he moved on to other things. He spoke expertly on many different subjects - from nature to real estate! And we couldn't have had a better co-captain than his very well behaved dog, Bella. This is a must do!

Had a great tour with captain Andrew Jr. and co-captain Bella. Saw two mothers and their calves right away. Captain Andrew was super tolerant of our four year old son who can be spirited and independent. Captain Andrew was very knowledgeable about the area and all the wildlife and made the tour great for all. Would definitely recommend going on... More
