Love it!

This was a great experience. I had my 13 year old and 6 year old and they both loved it. The water is so cold but the wetsuits and hot chocolate waiting in the boat help. I highly recommend going. The tour guides were awesome and super friendly.

Dani’s love and excitement for manitees made the trip very memorable. She made sure everyone had a great view of them and made the most of our time. Ryan also did a great job captaining and spotting the manitees. Thanks to both of them for making this experience the highlight of our trip.
