I've taken this tour three times now each time we have seen the Manatees. Two times the tour was led by Chris, and once with Jessica/Hoppy. They are both great. We will always include this option for guests that visit us in Sarasota.

Chris, our guide made our excursion a memorable experience! We saw many Manatees and a few even were swimming underneath our kayaks. It was a great time that we will always remember fondly.

Absolutely. They can either ride between 2 adults in a tandem kayak, or in front with 1 adult. Just give a call and we'll figure out which is best. Thanks
