My husband and I loved this trip. I swam and actually had a personal experience with a manatee! This wonderful, playful animal approached and hugged me. I had the chance to stroke him...it was a once in a lifetime experience. A special 'thank you' to Captain Garret who took pictures and kindly emailed them to me.

Captain's Jeff and Garrett were wonderful. When we failed to plan and hadn't booked a tour in advance, Jeff was able to secure a time for my family of 5. Captain Garrett offered a few opportunities to swim with the manatees and made sure we each got that unique experience. We also really appreciated how respectful he was of the... More

My dad and I were going to be in Crystal River for a couple of night ls and decided we wanted to manatees last minute. My dad tried to book a trip with one of the well known companies but they were already booked and referred us to Double J. We did the 7:30 trip which ended up only having... More

Captain Garrett was very knowledgeable and humorous. We did the 4 hour private tour. It was chilly that day so we ended after 3 hours. Hot chocolate, water and access to an underwater camera were provided. Jeff then sent me the photos via Box (for free!!!!). Wet suits and snorkeling gear were in perfect condition and clean. Captain Garrett took... More

The crew were very friendly and knowledgeable. They were all willing to help and make the experience the best. The location of the dock (Pete's Pier) was very easy to located as well. I will be taking students back to Double J Adventures in the near future.

Since me and my wife first saw manatees in Everglades, we always dreamed of swimming together with manatees, and Double J Adventures granted our dream! There were several options for manatee tours in the web, so I contacted my colleague in Florida for his suggestion, and he introduced me to Captain Jeff of Double J Adventures. I thank my colleague... More

With so many operators visiting Manatees, a small operation hangs on thanks to a personal approach. Captain Garrett made of this trip a fun and informative morning. First he found good spots for us alone and far from the crowd, later he took position near other boats but with Manatees that were not surrounded by those groups, so we still... More

Awesome trip, would recommend to anyone. Knowledgeable, friendly Captain found some manatees to swim with outside of the packed Three Sisters Spring. Then when we were swim out he took us on a quick tour of the area in the sun. Great trip!!

We were on this trip just before new year on Dec 31st, captain-guide was not very talkative but did the job. Offered hot cocoa after swimming and to see the bay as we had an hour left . Water was on the cold side and we could not snorkel for another hour, thought manatees are very nice and friendly. There... More
