Great tour. Active and involved. Captain Dustin and Ross were fantastic. We went in December with our college age “kids” and had a blast. The water was warm and tons of manatees to see, up close!

It was a rainy day buy we went out anyway--hey, you get wet regardless! Dustin and Capt Ed brought us to the very edge of the reserve and we saw over a dozen manatees. Even saw 2 mothers with 2 babies. Some were very friendly and curious and came up to us, giving us a nudge or "kiss". If you stay very still they can be very friendly. The dive shop has a nice boat, supplies towels, and a welcoming hot drink when you are done. The wetsuits are extra thick too and in very good condition to help keep you warm. All the equipment is in very good condition. This was a very good experience that has given us wonderful memories. Dustin used a GoPro to take pictures and videos of our experience; you have the option to purchase a USB afterward. Hot showers are available too. Nov to March is the season to see many manatees.

Our second time with this Adventure Center. This trip the weather messed us up, but our Captain still made it worth while. We were able to spend a good amount of time with a few manatees. Great videos and pics provided. If you want to interact with the manatees please use this service.

Go on the first trip in the morning.

Thanks Captain Steve

We had an amazing 2pm swim with the manatees. Thank you to Steve and Ed for a great experience. We had all ages in our group from 11 to 55 and everyone had a great time. We had first time snorklers in our group and everyone felt comfortable. It was an unexpected highlight of our Orlando trip.

Thank you to Captain Ed and Mike for helping us have such a fun experience. It was amazing getting up close and personal with the manatees and getting a kiss from the baby manatee.

I would definitely recommend!
