Great Experience for all! The crew and staff were first rate! They really took the time to teach us about the manatees and to teach us about the proper way to interact / swim in their environments. Highly recommend this adventure!

Nice local folks and calm environment. Such a treat compared to the loud, busy and artificial entertainment parks. This was a real treat for the soul. Thank you, from California folks!

I can't say enough wonderful things about our experience with Manatee Tour and Dive. From the moment we walked the staff was friendly and attentive. Captain Bryan and Zachary absolutely went above and beyond to make sure our whole family made the most out of this experience. We brought my young daughter on this tour, which I was hesitant about.... More

Coincidentally we drove by at the bay where the kayaks were. We asked the guy about Manatees and he told us we defenitely would see some if we took a tour on the boat. So we went to the shop to ask about booking a tour and again we talked to two different people in the store if we realy... More

We read the reviews before booking our trip but had little idea how much this trip would exceed our expectations. It was a truly unforgettable experience. The captain and guide were knowledgeable and great fun. Our trip started off within an unforeseen detour to rescue a baby manatee. This was brilliant enough but the time delay to deal with this...

Captain Glenn and Brian were fantastic. They love what they do. Very knowledgeable. They even catered the tour for our little ones. I highly recommend this tour. Reasonable prices and a great staff.

We chose this vendor because they offered a "dry" manatee tour, which allowed us to stay on the boat instead of snorkeling. The guides were great - very personable and friendly. We went in April, when most of the manatees have moved to cooler waters, but our guide was able to find several for us to experience. The weather was... More

Although we had a nice reception, with a movie to watch about Manatees, good structure as changing rooms to wear the wetsuit... The boat tour was frustrating, cause we got to see only two Manatees and they could be seen better from the boat that snorkeling in the water... Also Captain speaks too fast so that foreigners like us can... More
