The tour was fantastic. Captain Jess explained everything really well and she also paid attention to us not to stress out the manatees. It was very important for me to do the tour with a guide who is also interested in the animal itself and not only the money that you can make with a tour. Captain Jess made me... More

We had a great day on he river with Capt Kate. The slow leisurely ride up to the springs area where we snorkeled with almost 20 manatees. We had a couple cows with calves and some very curious manatees that met us at the surface. Kate recommended the "Freezer" for a bite to eat. It was fabulous. Thanks for a... More

My best friend and I had a great time. Captain Katy was incredibly friendly, professional, and knowledgeable about manatees and other wildlife. We learned a lot from her and enjoyed observing the manatees from up close.

Our tour guide's name was Katy. She was an excellent tour guide. She knew a lot of facts about the manatee's and we were able to see a baby nursing, eating the seaweed, and was able to pet them! Such a great experience!

If you'd like to get into the water for a close-up visit with manatees, no better value than with these folks. Cap'n Katie was very knowledgeable and a real pleasure to hang-out with on the Homossasa river. It's a an area less traveled than the Crystal River, but these folks can spot the animals, knowing their traits, and are huge... More

Snorkeling with manatees was on our bucket list. When I did a search it seemed like this company really cared about the manatee and were not interested in cramming as many people as possible on their boats(max 6) I was right!! We had Captain Jessica and she was terrific! Very knowledgable and fun. We paid extra to have the boat... More

There are so many shops offering manatee tours in Crystal river we thought we would be better off in Homosassa, where the scenery and water conditions are better (shallower) anyway. As soon as we entered the shop we loved it. Super friendly people with a great sense of humour, love for the manatees and an incredible passion for their business.... More

My wife and I did the manatee tour in the morning followed by the dolphin tour. We new it was wrong time of year for manatees but saw a couple which made our day. No dolphins this time but did see bald eagles, ospreys, cranes, annhinga etc. It was a great day with the enthusiastic Captain Katy, a wealth of... More

Hello and thank you for taking the time to review your tour. Yes, by having the small groups, it allows us to not pressure the manatees and you have more of a personal tour. The Dolphins can be a little elusive at times, however the other wildlife is amazing. We have over 80 different species of birds on the Homosassa... More

September is a bad time to go searching for manatees in the river. That being said, we had a great day on the water. Captain Katie was tireless in her effort to find us some manatees to snorkel with. We arrived at the shop on Suncoast Blvd a little early and were very surprised to find the door locked and... More
