Would repeat in a heartbeat

We saw 5-6 manatees, swimming, feeding, and coming to the surface to breathe. It was magical to watch these creatures in their Natural habitat. Jake was a fantastic guide in the water, working hard to ensure everyone got a good look. Visiting the three sisters springs at the end was icing on the cake.

This was an amazing experience. Christian and Kyle made sure we saw manatee within the first ten minutes. We were in the water surrounded by them for about 40 minutes and they were so friendly! I was worried about a long boat ride but everything is really close. The hot chocolate, coffee and hot showers after were a bonus. The group went on to a spring which looked gorgeous. I can’t wait to go back and bring my family!

The staff in the shop were very helpful, and patient. Captian Scott and our Instructor Misty were absolutely amazing. With their detailed instructions and keen Manatee knowledge, they got us up close to a Mother and baby Manatee and it was absolutely breathtaking! We spent nearly 2hrs or more swimming with Manatees on this adventure!!! I will definitely be coming back again!!!
