We had so much fun swimming with the Manatees! We were so excited for this is experience and it lived up to our expectations and more. I highly recommend Gulf coast Expeditions. I would use them every time. Ron and Lauren were amazing!! They love what they do and are passionate about these amazing gentle giants.

The most amazing experience!!! Gulf coast expeditions offer the most amazing small group experience for the best value because they only take up to 6 people per tour versus 11 or 12 with other tour operators for the same price so I highly recommend booking a tour with them instead of any other company. I would give them 10 stars instead of 5 if it was possible because they truly go out of their way to make sure that the experience is unforgettable! Thank you again guys, we will be back soon! 😊

Captain Lauren and Captain Mike were fabulous! They were meticulous in their explanations and assured that each person had a one to one experience with a manatee. In addition we were taken to view several springs. Kings Bay, Crystal River and 3 Sisters springs all beautiful.

My wife Teresa O'Briant and Nancy Cleburn had such a fabulous time With Gulf Coast Expeditions swimming with a mantee. The three sisters in Crystal River Fl was like swimming in an aquarium the river was so clear you could see the bottom of the river floor.

Captain Ron and Lauren were great! Getting ready with our instructions and our wet suits at the business first was really good compared to trying to do on the boat. We had a great time, learned a lot, not just about manatees but also about the local life, springs and much more. It was a highlight of our trip! The smaller operation was much more personal and less competitive to see the marine life. Thank you so much!
