Only two of us on our tour, but the captain was very friendly and took us right to the springs and manatees
Captain Randy went above & beyond to make sure we were satisfied with our trip.
Even though it wasn't the right season, are Captain went out of his way to find us a manatee. And he did!
We went during off season and not only did we get a private tour, but we met and swam with a few manatees. 3 hour tour was perfect, no rushing and very relaxing.
The employee were so nice and amazing at making sure you got best experience!!
Cody was an awesome guide and helped us see the manatees we were dying to see!
Great deal & quick boat ride to the manatee. Thanks for the tour.
It would be nice to hear more history about the area on the ride to and from the springs along with more information about the manatees. Guides were very friendly and I would highly recommend this place.
We were very impressed by the Capta8n and the guide. Very kind and professional...informed of all things Crystal River. I will be back.
We took the manatee trip on 19 March, and got to be around several beautif, gentle manatees. It was a great experience!
Cody made the trip for our group. He was engaging, knowledgeable and a lot of fun.
Great tour! One of the best animal experiences of my life.
The guys who took us out were very friendly and patient. The manatees has already departed the area but we still had fun snorkeling. Highly recommend this place.
Die Jungs waren super, sie geben ihr Bestes, damit man Manatees sieht. Leider haben wir trotzdem keine gesehen. Ansonsten war alles super.
We visited end of February and naturally Mother Nature moves the manatees out of the springs but the guides were up front that it would be hard to see any manatees at this point. We were able to see one surface and I was able to have one swim right by me. We went to the springs after our first stop in the bay and it was absolutely beautiful even if there were no manatees. Our guides were very laid back and easy to talk to!
The swim guide was very helpful and informative even if we didn’t get to see any manatees. We will be back next year.
Tour was great ... we were taken to a great spot and had several manatees around us. Guide was very informative and gave us a lot of great info!
The trip went as advertised, the boat captain and snorkel leader were very nice & knowledgeable, always on hand to watch over the group and to answer questions. It is a no frills trip, just what I signed up for.
Good experience. Guide is very patient.
It was a very nice and relaxing day, with two great tourguides. And with beautifull manatees! We were able to make some nice photos and video’s. Thank you very much for this day that we will always remember!
We had a really great time. Saw lots of Manatees and Captain Randy and our guide, Caleb were fantastic
The young guide was great! His name is Josh. However there were not enough manatee to see and I would insist on wearing flippers as they help you move faster.
Easy transaction and super friendly crew. We were first taken to Three Sisters Springs to test out our gear and float around gazing and the underwater world, then we were taken to see some manatees. I went in not expecting to see much since it's off season and super excited we got to swim with a mom and her calf. Very awesome experience on eclipse day! :) Thanks so much for the adventure!!!
Truly incredible tailor made experience. Will do it again!
We went in mid-August, not exactly the height of Manatee-sighting season. Owner's son was our captain and guide. He was very knowledgeable and we were able to snorkel near several,manatees. The folks were super friendly and helpful.
