Great Customer Service & no waiting

Friendly and helpful staff. The weather was lightly overcast, which was great kayaking but also made it a bit tougher to see into the water in the bay, as opposed to the spring areas which are shallow and clear enough that you can see well even without the sun. Water temperatures were not cold enough for manatees to mass up -- they do that to stay warm when the water gets cold -- but we saw a couple dozen individual manatees as we kayaked around the bay, including four that were up close, more or less directly under, beside, or in front of our kayaks. We saw more manatees on the back side of Banana Island (within sight of the keyhole) which is almost right behind Capt. Mike's than we saw in the rest of the bay and by the springs, though our best single sighting was by the Hunter Springs area where the view into the water was much better. Manatees aside, the bay and spring areas were excellent kayaking in their own right with the handy map that was provided. No complaints with our experience. I recommend Capt. Mike's to anyone interested in kayaking with manatees, keeping mind that you'll only see large numbers of manatees congregated at times when the water is sufficiently cold.

Everyone is very professional and nice. They gave us great directions to the springs and possible manatee locations. I will definitely be returning.
