Wonderful experience! We took the houseboat tour with 4 adults and 2 children (ages 6 and 7). Everyone was able to interact with plenty of manatees and have time to relax on the boat. I really think the private tour is the way to go... Nice and quiet, lots of individual attention. Highly recommend and plan on going back ourselves again!

My family and I went on a manatee swim tour with Nature Coast Manatee Tours and were so glad we did. Capt Jake and Rose are so nice and truly care about these amazing animals. They took their time and explained all the rules went over a video with us and then suited us up. They taught us a lot about the manatees and other wildlife we saw that day. Nice little breakfast and the boat was comfortable and very clean. I felt like I was at home. I will definitely recommend this company to everyone I know.

My husband and I along with our 4 year and 6 year old boys had a fabulous time. First stop within 15 minutes we saw four manatees and for over an hour able to pet them! We even saw dolphins and a monkey island! What an experience and Capt Jake and Rose are beyond nice and very accommodating! Houseboat is the way to go! We will be back more than once!

Who would have guessed that manatees would actually enjoy human interaction? They kept swimming back to us to be rubbed and petted and they blew through their noses and mouths when we patted them under their flippers! Jake and Rose were very helpful in ensuring that we got the most out of our interactions with the manatees. The boat trip in itself was so relaxing and enjoyable. We were all on a high after this unique experience.

We had a lot of fun on the manatee tour! Jack and Rose were very nice. We did the private tour and had plenty of time to swim with the manatees. We were able to pet them. On the way back to the dock, we even saw a dolphin! It was a great experience.
