“Excellent Manatee Tour On a Comfortable Pontoon Boat With a Great Guide”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2011

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our 2 1/2 hour manatee tour guided by Captain Johnny Barbera at Oasis Marina in Ft. Myers. Oasis uses new Bennington pontoon boats that comfortably accomodated our group of 6 (including John) and easily have room for two or three others - they even have a privacy changing room with a porta potty on board. John is a very knowlegeable guide and went out of his way to make our trip entertaining and informative. We got to see scores of manatees - which are amazing large and unusual animals. Please note however, that while you do get to observe the manatees up close and personal, these critters are basically like docil underwater cows - just grazing away and trying to ignore you - so they are worth seeing, but do not expect porpose-like acrobatics from them (I am sure everyone else already knew this, but I am just a dumb northerner). Thanks to John we got to learn a lot about the area and local wildlife in the air, on land, and underwater.

We highly recommend John Barara and Oasis Marina to others interested in a manatee tour or other guided trip if you are in the Ft. Myers area..
