Well, what a beautiful setting. I would of been happy even without the manatees. The variety of birds you get to see up close is wonderful. We had Kent looking after us, a lovely man with a great sense of humour and very well informed. The manatees are a delight. Such interesting creatures. For wildlife enthusiasts this is perfect.

We took a day out to go on this trip and were taken out with, I think it was captain Andrew, but my memory is bad for names. - however he was identifiable by his salty sea dog, Bella! She helped us find the manatees and actually barked when she saw them! We saw a mum and her calf who... More

Our guide was great he took us all over the canal and we saw plenty of birds and Alligators. He was just about to give up on seeing any manatees which would have made our trip free but we finally saw some. They were very cool to see up close. HIghly recommend.

Returned to Captain Andrew and 1st Mate Bella for a fun manatee sightseeing tour - saw more than just manatees too - lots of alligators and birds too - Captain Andrew shared knowledge of flora and fauna with my 6 and 9 year olds and let them drive the boat too 😄 had a great time again!!!

We chose this trip while staying in Naples, it is about a 50 minute drive but really easy to get to. When you arrive at the marina, there is a shop were you can get coffee and buy nik naks with Manatee on. You board the boat and there is a maximum of 6 people which is brilliant as it... More

We were on the boat with Andrew and his precious dog Bella. It was very educational and interesting learning about the habits of the Manatees and about the Everglades. We did get to see about 4 adult manatees and one young baby. We had even one come to the back of the boat and look right at us. Loved the... More

We wanted to have a chance to see Manatees in the wild. We chose Manatee Sightseeing Eco-Tourism Adventure based on their trip advisor reviews. We were not disappointed. The tour takes approximately 6 people on a covered pontoon boat down a waterway/river through mangroves. The tour lasts 1 and 1/2 hours. We saw some blue herons and egrits. The captain,... More

I would loved to have gone diving with the manatees, but sadly this isn't possible in Naples. So decided on a boat tour instead. We saw a few after about 30 min, and stayed with them for at least 30 min. Such fab animals. Captain Kent was very knowledgeable with his facts. We sadly didn't see any gators which would... More

We were fortunate that we had two Captains on board. Messrs Andrew and Bella. One was very informative and the other managed to chat with the manatees we saw. She also spent time sitting on my lap.......yes she was a daschund. Andrew made the trip interesting and entertaining and the Polaroid sunglasses he provided cut through the glare of the... More
