We went on this sightseeing trip on Friday, January 10th and Captain Jim was our captain. He did an excellent job explaining the manatees, their habitats and spending time maneuvering the boat so we could see the manatees up close. We also saw two alligators. Great fun was had by all!!

We got Captain John who did a great Job telling us all about the interesting wildlife and landscape of the marina and Everglades. We saw a lot of alligators, the most I’ve ever seen on an expedition and saw a few manatees as well. John has a lot of handouts and some resin models that added to the experience. Great for our kids 9, 8 and 5. Overall a great experience and I would recommend.

Did the 90 minute manatee trip.
Saw an alligator, ospreys and manatees. Best of all was this young one that came right up to the boat and circled it for 20 minutes. Captain John was great - full of information, friendly and worked to give us a fantastic trip! He brings with specimens for teaching, would be perfect for the kids.

Captain Storm was great- we learned so much about manatees and gators. We lucked out bc a cold front had just moved out so there were dozens of manatee just a minute away from their dock (looking for warm water). It was amazing!

we had capt. storm and wow. how much information that man knew blew MY mind. we saw numerous mantatees in groups of 3-5 and abunch of solos. small- medium gators. some tarpon fish. the mangroves overall i expected a dry pontoon ride but captain storm really made it a fun time while teaching us all about the wildlife out there not only mantatees would return with friends or family when we’re back in area 100%. id suggest asking for capt storm as to he litterally made the trip. along with the wild life lol

We are from Indiana and chose to visit Cape Coral for vacation. We booked the manatee tour, which lasted 1.5 hours and was perfect for our kids (ages 8,7,5). We learned a lot and had a really good time thanks to Captain Storm - he really included the kids and made the information understandable for them. We would highly recommend this group and Captain Storm!

We had the fortunate experience of going out with Captain Storm. He was entertaining while being knowledgeable in the manatee and other species. We saw a number of manatee, while learning the art of being patient waiting for them to become active. Very instructive and fun at the same time.

Captain storm was amazing! Very experienced and informational along the whole ride. I came into this thinking I was MAYBE going to see 1/2 manatees and we saw probably 7/8 with a possibly calf! And as a plus we also saw 3/4 alligators in the red mangrove trees!!! Such a great experience for a trip to florida with the family or a significant other. His jokes were funny and he showed us a great time! We will always recommend captain storm :)

Captain Storm was an amazing tour guide! We were all given polarized sunglasses to use to help see through the water better, which really helped. We were thrilled to see 6 manatee with 2 mothers and calf pairs, which is unusual. Some even came up to the boat. Then we went up the river and the guide pointed out sunning and swimming alligators, and an abundance of different birds including brown pelican, osprey, ibis, and herons. The tour was relaxing and informative; it was a great way to learn and also enjoy Florida’s beautiful nature while also enjoying the humor and knowledge Captain Storm had. Would 10/10 recommend!

Captain Jim is very knowledgeable about the fauna of the Everglades. Captain Jim hloaned us polarized sunglasses so would be able to see into the murky water. They worked awesome..He knew where to look for the manatteees and alligators. If it had been warmer and less breezy we would of seen quite a few more critters, Temperture was 60 with 20 mph wind gusts.
