We have used this company 3 times in the last 4 years. Always advertised as expected plus more. Staff is professional, helpful, knowledgeable, and friendly! Won't book with any other company. Getting ready to book another swim w/the manatees this week!

You wear a wet suit, but it is chilly. Water temp is 72 all the time. That’s why the manatees are there. Bring a towel and sweat shirt for when you get out.
