This tour was a complete waste of time and money.We called ahead for information and were told that we would see up close wildlife: alligators, manatees, dolphin, water birds, etc. Totally false information. "Lagoon and Swampland"... Lagoon is misleading and what swampland ? We live...More

I can only agree with many other comments here about the crew led by Captain Chop, who in my opinion should look at retiring from taking this trip to see Manatees, which we didn't see. Having worked in the tourist industry for over 30 years,...More

This could be a wonderful way to learn about the Indian River Lagoon, which is a unique habitat and the pride of the Treasure Coast. The captain of this boat is knowledgeable, or seems to be, but seems unable or unwilling to share his love...More

The captain seems to be pretty easygoing. However none of the passengers had one during my trip. It does not cost anything to try as long as the empties stay on board.
