We booked a private tour for our family (2 adults, 2 teens) to see the manatees in Blue Springs State Park. Our guide, Eric, met us at the meeting spot and the owner, Greg, joined us for part of the time, too. Eric, a master naturalist, was fantastic – he was full of information and could engage teens and adults alike. While he was fantastic with information about the manatees (there were over 200 the day we were there), he was equally good on the rest of the kayaking trip with info about all of the birds and reptiles we were seeing. On top of being super informative, it was incredibly fun. Definitely a great family outing for nature enthusiasts!
