*We have a worldwide reputation for unwavering dedication to protecting the manatees and assuring that our interactions do not have detrimental effects on them.
*Our captains are long term employees, They are experienced, mature adults dedicated to making sure you have a fun, safe, and informative tour.
Our captains get IN to the water to assist you, assure the passive interaction with the manatees, and shoot an underwater video that you can view upon return and purchase if you like.
Our boats are fully enclosed for the cold winter seasons. We have a changing room and porta-potti.
Our tours are 3 - 4 hours long depending on the conditions. We do not rush you out of the water. We do not have to get back to the dock to make a deadline for another tour. Our tours are spaced so that we do not have to rush back to the dock.

Due to the high number of requests for afternoon Manatee Swims we want to be very clear on the conditions. It is difficult to have as good a tour later in the morning as it is at 6:15. We go out early specifically to beat the crowds. We encourage people to take the early tour because conditions are usually better in the morning (before other boats are on the water and before the manatees move away from the springs to feed). 11:00 am tours can be an enjoyable cruise, but we don't consider them manatee tours. We'll take you snorkeling to a few pretty springs and We'll certainly try to find manatee.
Private Chartered Tours are also available year round. (Please call for availability.)
