This is possibly one of the best value tours that we have been on - knowledgeable guide, beautiful unspoilt wilderness, manatees (!!!), turtles, birds & alligators everywhere. The best hour of our trip so far!

There are several alternatives available but we chose this one because we felt our money would go towards the restoration and maintenance of the area. Our Captain was friendly, knowlegable and experienced and gave a good narration to accompany the tour.
