My wife and I booked this trip unsure of what to expect, not being high season for manatees. After a quick safety video, Captain Ross loaded us on to the boat and off we went. Leaving the dock he already had spotted two females and two males coming in to the channel. He quickly anchored and got us in to get up close.
We then headed to clearer water at Hunter Springs Run, where we spotted a female and her calf. We swam with them around for about 15 minutes.
Captain Ross then took our group to a beautiful area named Three Sister Springs. We got to swim around in a beautiful piece of nature, it looked as if you where in a pool, crystal clear water. It was truly an amazing experience
On our way back we were lucky to spot a dolphin. Our captain took the time to get us in the right position to watch it play and take pictures. Although we were already late, he showed no sign of rushing to get back. Captain Ross really wanted to show us all the beautiful things that there are to see here.
This is a trip I would recommend to anybody, Captain Ross is such a friendly and knowledgeable person and provided us with such a unique experience. We truly loved the time on and off board. Something we will never forget.
