We had an amazing time snorkeling with the manatees. Captain Ron was professional and knowledgeable and Lauren was a great guide. We highly recommend this if your going with kids. Our girls (5 & 7) had so much fun and Lauren did a great job getting them in to the water.

Captain Ron and Lauren are fun, knowledgeable. This was the Best snorkeling adventure we’ve been on to date. I’m glad he called and suggested the 10 o’clock tour over the 1:30. It was worth the change as when we were leaving the area it was getting busy on the water.

It was the best experience! We went on the earliest tour at 6:30 am and it was just us and the manatees in the water. The diver with us was very knowledgeable. She also took great pictures of us in the water so we didn’t have to worry about it. They provided coffee and hot chocolate as well. I highly recommend this tour. Once in a life time experience.

Thank you very much for the kind words! You guys braved the early morning trip and found out why we recommend it. Fewer people, more active manatees and Three Sisters Springs all to yourselves! We hope to see you again soon!

Ron was very friendly and helpful during our vacation. He assured us that the wetsuits and snorkeling gear were sterilized using hospital-grade disinfectants. He was very knowledgeable and answered all of our questions before, during, and after the excursion. He knew the spots where the manatees were and on our first stop we got to interact with the manatees. Courtney was also a guide and went in the water with us to make sure we were following the rules with interacting with manatees. She took pictures and videos along the way that we were able to purchase at the end. I would recommend this to anyone; if I come back to Florida I would definitely do this again!

This was one of the most amazing experiences I’ve had in my entire life. Captain Ron and Lauren were incredible guides who were both very knowledgeable and genuinely good people. We saw more than 5 manatees up close and many other cool fish and rocks. I would definitely recommend this to anyone going to Florida who is interested in wildlife and exploring the beautiful outdoors.
