Excellent private manatee tour. Cptn. Jake and Rose were very friendly and helpful. The boat was nice. They had muffins and coffee and fruit and hot chocolate. The bathroom was nice, but we didn't use the shower or watch tv. Who wants to watch tv when you have such beautiful scenery! I can't wait to come back and do a scallop trip with them. They are down to earth good people. Not a big commercial company. Love them. Rose was very helpful in guiding us to where the manatees were and on the way back Jake got us really close to the monkeys and even "called" them. (Rose should be proud. Lol) can't wait till see them again.

We had such a wonderful experience with Capt. Jake, Rose and of course the manatees! They genuinely care for and respect these animals! I have been on other manatee tours before and none even came close to this experience! I would never book a tour with anyone else again!! By far one of the best days ever!!

We had a great time with Jake & Rose from Nature Coast Manatee Tours. They picked us up at the dock and we cruised the river in search of Manatee's. It had been a warm winter so they were not many around, but we were still able to find a Mom and baby. My father-in-law and I swam out and were able to interact with the Manatee's. It was awesome. Rose took some photo's for us and burned them to a CD so we could have our own souvenir of the trip. Rose and Jake were great host's, they provided beverages, food, and great conversation. They treat you like family. On the trip back they took us by Monkey Island and an osprey nest. We also saw a couple eagles! I highly recommend them, and look forward to joining them in the summer for a Scallop tour. P.S. My father-in-law left his jacket and hat on the boat and they held it for us until we could get back down to Homosassa to pick it up. Thanks Jake & Rose for wonderful memories.

This was so much fun & truly a great experience! We did this February 10th, and we saw dozens of these gentle creatures. There are lots of companies to choose from, but these folks were great! We were very pleased! If you come to Florida you really should take some time and book this excursion with Jake & Rose!!!!
