We booked the Sunset Manatee Swim and it was amazing! Kelly, our guide, was great - very friendly and knowledgable!!! And as no other tour operator seems to run manatee encounters in the afternoon, we had the manatees all “for ourselves”. Which was amazing for “snorkeling newcomers” - it was easier to get used to the snorkel without worrying about a crowd of people. The captain was great too - I witnessed how patient he was with a couple that had never snorkeled before. He guided them until they lost their fear and became comfortable breathing with the snorkel.
