FABULOUS tour!!

The tour was AMAZING!!! Capt. Fish and Shanna were awesome tour guides! We interacted with so many manatees, but that is never a guarantee. We just got the right day. Just remember that the tour guides have no control over nature and it is not their fault if the manatees are not engaging! But when they do engage, it is AMAZING!!!! Highly recommend.
