Went for a tour with Captain Tim Family Adventures in late October. For the 7:30 expedition, my husband and I were so fortunate to be alone with our guide and captain onboard. Engines on, slowly leaving the mooring place, engines off....there they were : “a...More
5th time using Capt Tim. This time Capt Chas was our guide. Another totally AWESOME adventure. Great Manatee encounters and great day on the water. Will ALWAYS use Family Adventure Charters and recommend them to everyone.
