Captain Leon was great. This trip was a Christmas present for my daughter from her Aunt. There was a manatee stuffy given at Christmas with a note from Marty the Manatee. Captain Leon played along and found Marty for us. It was a grand experience.

Our captain was very knowledgeable and personable. He found manatees for us several times and we were able to get in the water and observe the manatees in their environment. Very pleased! Another bucket list item checked off! Highly recommend!

Snorkeling with manatees was just like we imagined it would be. They are gentle and curious creatures, and we loved the experience. Our guides were fun and full of information. I liked the idea of going here instead of in Crystal River, because of how...More
