My husband, our 4 kids (ranging in age from 6-15), and my mother & father-in-law just did this this morning. We did a private tour wit captain Shawn. What a great experience. We were the first group out this morning, & that was a bonus for us. We were out there all by ourselves for awhile. We saw tons (meaning hundreds) of manatees within literally the first 1/2 hour.
I booked with this company because of the reviews i read on here & they were right on. This is a good company to work with. Book the earliest tour of the day if you can, if you have enough people, I thought the private tour was really nice. The guide had lived there all his life & was very knowledgeable about the area & wildlife.
