We go here every July 4th, and each year more people join us. I would recommend this place to anyone, one of our most favorite vacations. The staff is so friendly it feels like home now when we visit. Can't wait until this year!!

Our family comes here 2 or 3 times a year. It is a great place with so many things to do. They have many things that families can do together - outdoor games, pool, indoor games, boat/canoe rentals. Many things to see.

That is something to ask either the general manager or Guest Services. Call the venue and ask for the Front Desk. This is what I would do. Thanks for asking and enjoy your visit!

I'd say call the Plantation Inn and speak to the boat/dive shop. We had amazing Capt. Jeff. He grew up in that area, so very knowledgable. From what I read now is peak manatee season and they thin out from there.
