Maggie and Brody were awesome. We showed up with 3 kids under 8 and they didn't miss a beat. Helped coax our daughter that was scared of the manatees into the water and made the experience for her magical!! Brody entertained our almost 3 year old so we could enjoy the experience. Bithe were very informative about the manatees and Kings Bay. I will be bringing my family back for a second trip with Explorida Adventures, and I hope these two are still there..

We had an amazing time. Our tour guides were Brian, Keri and Capt. Tom. They made us feel so comfortable and at ease. It made our family experience great.

The trip with Captain Tom and Amy was amazing from start to finish. Lovely friendly team who’s passion for the manatees and preserving their natural habitat was evident from the start. The equipment was all top quality, as was the boat. We found 2 amazing dive locations and saw lots of manatees including a pregnant female. The team were knowledgable about the animals but also so respectful towards the animals and entering their environment. Our son throughout enjoyed his time in the water and on the boat with Captain Tom when he had got too tired. A cantata tic must do trip for anyone visiting beautiful Crystal River. Thank you.

The three hours went by far too quickly!! I think our group could have floated around all day just watching the manatees sleep! What a wonderful experience, led by our two amazing guides, Carrie & Brian (if I got your names wrong, I'm so sorry) and our captain, Alex. For a first time snorkeler, they gave us plenty of tips and it was an easy adjustment once we were in the water. This company and the others seem to work together to not crowd the manatees and tip each other as to where they are. Our guides were superior, as we found manatees and were able to see them eating and sleeping for practically the whole time. It was truly magical! Definitely a worthwhile experience - you won't be sorry!!! :)

One of the most unforgetable moments in my live. Alex and Casey were lovely, explained everything and we could swim with a manatee and his little baby. We had beautiful moments. This would not be the last time in my life, I will repeat this great event.
