We had a great time on our boat tour. It would have been worth the price even if we hadn't found any manatees. We saw alligators, Great Blue Herron's, and various other water... read more

We spent all but 15 minutes of the 1 1/2 hours cruising around the area of the Port of the Isles Condominiums facing the marina. For about 15 minutes we where in the mangroves viewing birds, alligators and such waiting to spot a manatee. I then got a phone call from Captain Roy telling me that he'd called me because... More

We had a great time on our boat tour. It would have been worth the price even if we hadn't found any manatees. We saw alligators, Great Blue Herron's, and various other water birds. Captain Storm gave us a running narrative of the ecology of the area and habits of manatee and the other fauna and the flora that support... More

We went on this tour in October with Jim as our tour guide. It was very enjoyable and Jim was so knowledgeable about the animals and landscape in the area. We saw multiple manatees, alligators, an eagle and many other birds. It was nice because it was just my husband and I and another couple so we could ask a... More

My mother and I went on this excursion with hopes of seeing a manatee for the first time! We saw 3 manatees, many alligators, birds, ospreys! Captain Rich was able to provide helpful hints on spotting the manatees and was a wealth of knowledge about manatees, the everglades, etc! Would highly recommend.

We enjoyed a 1 1/2 hour boat tour with Jim as our Captain. He was very knowledgeable and friendly while searching for manatees for us to see. We saw a mom and baby as well as a larger male. There was also a 12 foot alligator and several birds. He made sure we were able to get pictures of everything... More

My family and I decided to go on this tour while in Florida and we had so much fun! Captain Storm found a small group of manatees within the first few minutes. I've never seen manatees before so this trip was so awesome, especially being able to see the baby manatees. We also saw several alligators and lots of birds.... More

We had a wonderful time looking for manatees and also seeing many other fish, birds, and alligators. In the end I believe we saw 5 or 6 manatees. Captain Stormy was extremely insightful and knowledgeable about all the wildlife and related well to our entire party, which included two older ladies, one special needs young adult, and one college freshman....

We had a super tour our guides were knowledgeable and well trained. The group was a manageable size. They kept us informed of the area and knew where to find the manatees. We saw several manatees including one swimming right underneath us and a mama and baby feeding. Wonderful experience.

I went on an excursion with my 94 year old mother and her friend to Naples. It was a lovely trip and one of the highlights was touring the waters for manatees and other wildlife with Captain Jim. We saw many manatees, an alligator and lots of birds. It was thoroughly enjoyable and very reasonably priced.
