Our guide was knowledgable about the area and the animals. He and his son were professional and courteous, but also very personable. I love that they're respectful of these amazing wild creatures, nut also try to get the customer what they paid for. Overall a great experience! Loved it!

Tour guide, Christian was great. We were lucky with weather and with seeing manatees. The water was not as clear as we thought it would be, but clear enough. The only down side may be the age of the boat..though I could see if on colder day, it would be better than the other tours we saw in open boats. The only other thing would be the sizes of wetsuits...the size for one was off from the size we asked, so it was not huge deal, but we should of called to double check..overall a good day and a good experience. Better than waiting in lines all day for one ride at some theme park.

We had a wonderful trip with Nature Coast Manatee Tour! They had nice new wetsuits for us to wear, they led us right to the best manatee spot ever! Everyone in our group enjoyed themselves. I pet so many manatees I lost count. When we got out of the water they provided sandwiches, chips and drinks. Austin and Jake were friendly and informative. They even helped take pictures of us in the water! It was the best money I have spent in years! We are actually planning a scalloping tour with them in the summer! Thanks so much for such great memories, see ya soon!
