We went out on the 11AM tour and were pleasantly surprised to see a large number of manatees on the way to three sisters spring as well as in the springs. Great crew to guide us.

Did a manatee snorkel with Bird's in 2013, and had such a great experience we couldn't wait to get back. And it didn't disappoint! My favorite part of this company is they really know how to properly interact with the manatees, and take the steps...More
