    We came to Florida with our adult children and grand baby! We've done the typical parks (universal, Kennedy space center and Disney) The manatee swim was by far my favorite! Trish and Wade were amazing tour guides! Even the baby enjoyed it! We would highly recommend this tour!

    My boyfriend surprised me for my birthday with a getaway trip to Florida. One of our most memorable stops were at this place. I never knew how awesome it would feel to swim so close to a manatee. I’m barely 5’2” so I felt like I was swimming next to a majestic water elephant.
