What a fun and informative tour with Captain Rich! We really enjoyed seeing all the manatees, alligators and birds. It was fun learning about manatees and their habits. We had a wonderful afternoon cruising the canal area and seeing the wildlife up close!

We got to the dock and I had a recent mishap and was on crutches. It wasn't a problem as it was an easy walk to the boat and easy to just step on board! Captain Rich mentioned that things had been crazy lately since...More
