Used Tripadvisor recommendations and booked with Bird's. We had an excellent experience on the last day of 2013. The 6am tour was great as we were the first ones there. It is scary at first b/c I am not comfortable in the water but you get used to it and just get entralled by these large, gentle animals swimming around you. My college age daughters thought it was a highlight of their lives. My wife snorkeled for the first time and took to it quickly. The wetsuit keeps you pretty buoyant and you can use a noodle to float. If you don't want to swim you can stay on the boat. The manatees loved chewing on the lines from the boat and at least six hung out around our boat just playing with the rope lines. Bird's is very professional and took good care of everyone onboard.
