“Manatee Queen - a Hidden Treasure in Jupiter FL”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

If you are looking for an inexpensive way to get out on the water for a couple of hours this is it. The Manatee Queen is a well-kept vessel operated by a staff that goes out of their way to make your experience a positive one. Danielle - the office person - was very nice and answered all of my questions prior to making the trip. The Captain really knows the area and kept us entertained. We were thrilled to learn they encourage you to bring your own cooler and snacks. You leave and return from the docks at Bubba Gumps Shrimp Company. We had lunch there afterwards which is a perfect way to end the trip. I highly recommend this tour. We are locals that drove up from Plantation FL, which took about an hour. Well worth it. Will do it again for sure.

“Entertaining boat ride”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013 via mobile

My family (including a 5 and 7 year old) just took this boat ride yesterday and we all enjoyed it. The boat was clean and comfortable, and Captain Mark was very knowledgeable and friendly. He even let my 2 kids steer the boat which they loved. He pointed out many interesting facts about many of the houses along the intercoastal waterway and the surrounding area. He even spotted two manatees swimming under the water and stopped so everyone could see them. To make a long story short, this was a very enjoyable, educational, and entertaining experience that I would recommend to others.

Please note that you have to walk through the Bubba Gump restaurant in order to get to the dock where the boat is. No worries though as the restaurant staff is totally used to it. Even better though is the fact that you will get a coupon to eat at the restaurant when you take the boat ride. We stooped and had lunch here after our ride was over. Good stuff.

“Not Just for Visitors!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

I recently took my visiting sister on the Manatee Queen, and we had a great time! Capt. mark was friendly, funny and had a wealth of good stories to tell. It's a great way to spend an afternoon on the water, and although there is water and snacks available to buy at $1.00 each, you can bring your own food and beverages. There were two young children on board, and they had a great time, with lots of interaction with the Captain.

“Enjoyable Trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

Captain Mark did a great job both narrating and navigating throughout the trip. My wife and I had taken the trip nine times previously when Capt. Brian was the captain. We brought our kids this trip and were pleasantly surprised with the new captain. Capt. Mark was laid back, but very professional. Lots of info on the properties of the rich and famous with some history and nature thrown in. He did a great job with the boat on an unusually busy day on the water. We enjoyed it so much that we're thinking of going on the sunset cruise.

“great tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

We really enjoyed the noon boat tour with Captain Mark. He is interesting and informative without being boring. He spoke about the history of the area as well as the famous and infamous mansion owners. This tour is not to be missed !
