So!Much!Fun!

So! Much! Fun! Lindsey M. and Capt. Peter are the best. They make a great team and were easily able to find manatees for us to enjoy. The manatees were happy to see us, too! Great experience! I do recommend doing a VIP/private tour. That is what we did. There is a lot more room on the boat and more space to enjoy the manatees. The manatees seem to enjoy it more as well.

The people and booking process were awesome. The only issue was due to the warm temperatures there ware not many Manatee's and only 2 people of our group of 8 got to see them in them water. However the boat operators were great and went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed the trip.

We went into this tour not really knowing what to expect, and we were pleasantly surprise to see so many manatees! Our boat captain and guide were very informative and friendly to those of us in the water, as well as those who remained as observers on the boat. They were also very considerate of other tour groups in the water. The manatees were so curious and interacted with us in the water. We would highly recommend this tour.
