Todd was a great tour for the Manatee encounter . He spotted all the alligators through the trip . He was funny , very knowledgable, and made the trip very relaxed . I would recommend any of the adventures offered with this company if Todd is a representative , it could only be a success . Will do another myself in the future.

We really liked our guide Jeff. He was very informative. We stayed out 3 hours and it was the right amount of time. Loved seeing the manatees, gators and turtles. Would defiantly recommend this tour to other people.
