Thank you Jersey Jim for a wonderful tour! Lots of manatees and wild birds along the edge of the mangroves with a knowledgeable tour guide who was never flustered by our constant questions. Highly recommended!

Our family of 3 adults and two grandchildren took a 90 minute cruise looking for manatees. Captain Kent was terrific and kept a good banter going. Only saw two manatees, but they were a mother a daughter pair. No alligators,today, but we did learn a lot about the local Eco system. We would recommend it.

We had a great sightseeing adventure with Captain Rich! He took us all over the area telling us all about the history of the area and answered all of our questions. It was a perfect day to see a lot of manatees and birds including a bald eagle! We recommend this to everyone and will do it again as long... More

We saw manatees but this tour guide (unfortunately I don't remember his name) was admittedly new. He didn't point a single manatee out, everyone in the boat had to point them out. He gave very little info. At one point he was just following the other tour guides in other boats around and was texting away on his phone. Not... More

Unfortunately, adventure this was not. Once we were out in the river, we did see a large alligator. Then, we saw a mother and baby manatee under water and the highlight of the tour was when the baby came up to get air and stared at us like he was thinking "what are these?". Very cute. That was the extend... More

An hour and a half boat cruise. Comfortable pontoon boat. Our guide Rich was knowledgeable and entertaining. Saw lots of manatees as well as other local wildlife. Plus the company says "no see (manatees), no pay".

Captain Kent was an excellent tour guide during our eco-tour on Feb. 10. We saw manatees, numerous species of birds and enjoyed the ride on the pontoon boat. My only request would be, make the trip longer and take us further out towards the gulf.

We arrived hoping to see manatees in a place that we only had 24 hours to see. Captain Jersey Jim, showed us everything we wanted to see you more we were expecting to see a manatee and give our six-year-old a great experience on the water in South Florida. Not only did we see manatees, we saw dolphins play I... More

Guaranteed to see manatees or pay nothing, well we did see manatees this afternoon, was all worth the trip, not to mention other interesting birds, and alligators. Captain Ken was fantastic in explaining everything to us, never a rush and answered all our questions. Was such a nice soothing afternoon, well worth the fee.
