I was in Florida a couple of weeks ago and always wanted to see Manatees. Our Captains name was Kent and he was wonderful. He could answer any question we had about Manatees and maneuvered the boat to assure that we would see lots of Manatees. This was a very relaxing and enjoyable tour and I would highly recommend it.

The boat ride around the coves was very enjoyable. You do see the manatees which is neat! Guides are very knowledgeable.

While it was fascinating seeing the manatees in the wild it was disappointing that the water was so murky. You could only see vague shapes for a few seconds. The information passed along was excellent along with the various items that were displayed to us.

We are sorry Mother Nature did not cooperate on your tour. Quality visuals are GUARANTEED on each tour. This is very unusual as you can see by the 1000 great reviews. You should not have been charged. A full refund is due. Capt. Barry More

We happened upon the Port of the Islands Marina and saw a manatee sightseeing tour leaving the dock. We went inside to ask about the tour and when the next one was. They were so nice to take us right away on another boat to meet up with the one that had just left so we could join them. We... More

Thank you Jersey Jim for a wonderful tour! Lots of manatees and wild birds along the edge of the mangroves with a knowledgeable tour guide who was never flustered by our constant questions. Highly recommended!

Our family of 3 adults and two grandchildren took a 90 minute cruise looking for manatees. Captain Kent was terrific and kept a good banter going. Only saw two manatees, but they were a mother a daughter pair. No alligators,today, but we did learn a lot about the local Eco system. We would recommend it.

We had a great sightseeing adventure with Captain Rich! He took us all over the area telling us all about the history of the area and answered all of our questions. It was a perfect day to see a lot of manatees and birds including a bald eagle! We recommend this to everyone and will do it again as long... More

We saw manatees but this tour guide (unfortunately I don't remember his name) was admittedly new. He didn't point a single manatee out, everyone in the boat had to point them out. He gave very little info. At one point he was just following the other tour guides in other boats around and was texting away on his phone. Not... More

Save your money. Saw very little. Not what we expected. Saw one or two total and they were very hard to see. Floated around very close to the dock most of the hour and a half. Took a short trip and saw nothing. Take one of the air boat rides that are offered nearby.

Unfortunately, adventure this was not. Once we were out in the river, we did see a large alligator. Then, we saw a mother and baby manatee under water and the highlight of the tour was when the baby came up to get air and stared at us like he was thinking "what are these?". Very cute. That was the extend... More
