I think the prices are advertised on their website. The price includes the minibus ride to the water, the boat trip, the guide, the wetsuit and snorkel. As a family of 5 we decided to go for the VIP trip. We went on a much superior boat, had the boat and guide to ourselves, sailed in all the little offshoots of water looking for the manatees, were provided with drinks and snacks and the guide also took all the photos which we received on a memory stick to take away. We felt it was worth the extra money. Particularly as there are only a few resident manatees at this time of year and the water is murkier than at the beginning of the year when there are hundreds of them in clear water. I hope you have a great experience.

It’s always best to get out onto the refuge as early as possible. Beating the crowds of people out onto the water, beating the heat, getting out before the manatees have had much, if any, interaction for the day all help to provide for a better experience. We still see the manatees on the later trips but you can expect to encounter more people out for the purpose of viewing the manatees. Other tour companies, recreational boaters, kayakers and those who are out with their own personal watercraft can be expected as the morning progresses. Weekends are always busier than weekdays. Thanks for your interest in our tours.
