This tour was a great experience. Captain Kent was very knowledgable about all the wildlife. He knew where to go to find the manatees and pointed out bald eagles, alligators, osprey, and many other animals along the way. He had many interesting stories and anecdotes to share with us during the tour. Strongly recommended!!!

We saw so many manatees! Nice easy boat ride around on the water, saw plenty of wildlife. Captain was nice, booking process was easy. Good value for the price, make sure you ask for the trip advisor discount.

This was a fun and beautiful trip. We saw many manatees and our Captain was amazing. He answered all of our questions and even gave us great recommendations on where to go after. I would highly recommend Captain Andrew Senior.

Captain Andrew Jr. and his 1st mate Bella took us to maybe 15 different manatee packs, w/adult males, females and babies, as well alligators and birds. The captain did an outstanding job keeping us informed as well as making sure Bella stay focused piloting our vessel. If your goal is to see manatees, these our your people.

My wife and I have just enjoyed a wonderful trip with Captain Kent, working for Captains Barry and Carol at Port of the Islands resort, near Naples. During the trip we got very close to several Manatees, including a large female and her calf. What graceful, gentle creatures they are. Got some photos, but you have to be quick as... More

This was the 5th time my wife and I have taken the tour. We enjoy it every time. Each time we take visitors from up north and everyone loves it. This time it was raining during the first part of the tour so the Manatee sightings were few and brief. No worries, Capt. Rich stayed out a little longer at... More

On a day away from the beach and the pool, this was a great afternoon trip to explore part of Florida and see manatees! Captain Rich was an awesome guide for my wife, 12 yr old daughter and me. He is well-versed in information on manatees and much of the wildlife for the area. The pontoon boat tour of the... More

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

We took the 1 1/2 hour tour at 11:30 am. Captain Rich was very knowledgeable about the Manatees and the area and the history of the area. We only had to wait about 10 minutes into our tour until we saw at least 5 different Manatees. I have attached a couple of photos that show how close we actually were... More
