This is an inexpensive way to see some very expensive property, most of which you can not see from the road. Our captain Mark was very knowledgable and entertaining. The staff were all very helpful and accommodating. If you have 2 hours to spare from 12-2 any day, give it a try!

I had family in from out of town and was looking for fun stuff to do. We did the noon Manatee Queen tour and really enjoyed it! The captain had a lot of interesting information about the homes on the intracoastal. It was about a 2hr tour. If you are expecting to see Tiger's house, you should know that there is so much landscaping - you can barely see the roof. It was very nice that you are able to bring your own cooler, so we had drinks and snacks with us. It may not be as entertaining for young children. Our 5 year old did okay, but was a little long for him. I would recommend getting there a little early. We were the last ones on the boat and had to sit in the front which did not have covered seating. It was a pretty hot day and we were glad we had sunscreen with us. Overall, I would definitely recommend. I have also done the Duck ride in West Palm and this excursion was much better!

This was a great experience! The captain knew all sorts of information about the homes we went past and their history. He even let my kids steer the boat which they loved! Definitely would recommend the Manatee Queen if you are looking for something to do! They even encourage you to bring your own food and drink on board.

There are not a lot of "activities" to do in the evenings at Jupiter so we decided to give the Manatee Queen a shot. Captain Mark was fantastic and reading older reviews of the previous captain it is very apparent he is a polar opposite of the rude captain who once ran this cruise. Mark is very knowledgeable and entertaining and very kid friendly. Don't expect to "ooooohhhh and awwwwwweeeee" over the sights or the celebrity homes you will see (Celine Dion and some of the other homes are too far North and Tiger's house is purposely tough to see), but Mark does share numerous stories as well as personal accounts and it is definitely a great way to spend an afternoon.

The cost is a bit steep for what it is.. but if you are like we were and just wanted to do something different for an evening it certainly is a good product and entertaining. A bonus is the fact Mark is very friendly and knowledgeable about local events and nightlife and will be happy to give advice as well.
