I went to see manatees on 7/25/2016. I was on a boat with captain Andrew Jr. and his dog Bella. The trip was fantastic. Andrew is knowledgeable about the manatees, knows where to look for them, and can explain tons of information about the gators, falcons, and other wildlife that you see during the tour. Bella is beautiful and fun... More

Had a great time eventhough we only found one manatee. Our Captain Andrew stayed with it and we got many good views of it. They make sure that you get to see at least one, even in the morning when there are less of them active. Bella, the co-captain dog, was adorable and friendly, making the children feel less nervous.... More

Captain Jim is amazing, very knowledgeable and fun to be around. We saw about 15 manatee, gators and bull sharks. We also ran into the very famous Henry. If you want a fun experience ask for captain Jim and ask him about the famous Henry the manatee.

Captain Walker and his son Logan worked hard to find a group of manatees. Finally with the teamwork of Captain Jim, my daughter and I were able to float with a group of 6 for at least 1/2 hour. They didn't let us down. What beautiful creatures!If only people could follow their example!

Had a great experience, saw manatees within a few minutes of starting our boat ride. Captain Kent was great, very knowledgable and entertaining. We loved getting to see the mom and baby close up. Would recommend

We had a great time seeing a Manatee with Captain Andrew Jr. and first mate Bella. He spent a lot of time allowing us to really get close to the manatee. On the way back to the dock we also were able to see an alligator.

Our family decided to see manatees and we were not disappointed! We were first met by Bella who immediately gave a warm welcome and some fascinating information about Manatees. Next we met the captain, Andy Jr who can't be recommended more highly, and proceeded to see at least 4 different Manatees. Not only did Andy Jr find the manatees but... More

Wow. A great time. We saw about 20 manatees in the 90 minutes we were out. And we were only 10 feet from them. The boat holds about a dozen people, but we only had 6. It travels slowly and quietly down the Faca Union Canal. Our guide explained all about these wonderful animals and the other wildlife in the... More
