For my 26th birthday my family purchased a trip with nature coast manatee tours that included four hours on a guided houseboat to homasassa springs off the crystal river, where you got to wetsuit up and swim with manatees in their natural habitat. It was just perfect, even being sick at the time, my family and I had an amazing time, and it's a completely worthwhile experience. I recommend it to young and old, as it is safe while being adventerous, and lots of fun. Truly great memories were created and I would not take a chance with any other manatee swimming company other than nature coast manatee tours.

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!
