I used Manatee tour and Dive 3 times so far. There is a reason I keep coming back. Friendly staff and captains, clean facilities and excellent reservation system. Important: if you go on a warm day, you will not be able to see manatees. This is not something they can control. My advice is to pick the coldest day possible... More

Throughly enjoyed the tour especially with Captain Casey & guide Shelly! They both were extremely knowledgeable of the Manatees and their habitat. Their passion and respect for the Manatees and environment was evident during the tour. I would highly recommend this guided tour with these two unique individuals!! 😉

We went for an outing with Captain Alex and Brody and enjoyed them both. Their suggestion for the best Manatee ride is "the colder, the better". The manatees come into the inland waterways when it is cold. When warm, they venture out into the Gulf of Mexico and sometimes up to the Carolinas in the summer. I really enjoyed this... More

We went on a 10am manatee swim tour with a super excited 9 year old and an apprehensive 12 year old. We weren't sure what to expect given the chilly weather. This trip surpassed our expectations. Captain Kate and Guide Alex were wonderful. Friendly, informative and good with the kids. Wet suits were a godsend. Snorkels and masks provided along... More

From the online booking to courteous counter service and then Chris and Shelly on the boat, we had a great experience all around. Swam within inches of manatee and learned a lot as well.

We had a great time on Sunday snorkeling with manatees! We had 12 people in our group, which was the max size for the boat but we didn't feel squished at all. Our captain, Brian, gave us lots of interesting facts and tidbits about manatees as we rode out to the first spot, and the other crew member, Austin, helped... More

Captain Bryan very informative and entertaining; weather was great and we saw several manatees above and below water. Only unfortunate thing was that water clarity was poor in the bay areas we were viewing the animals on the day we were there. I would recommend the trip with Manatee Tour and Dive to anyone interested in having a close encounter... More

What an awesome experience! Of course my family & I were a bit nervous initially, but our captain and two guides put us at ease. They took us to multiple spots, answered all our "typical" questions, showed us what to expect for a manatee interaction/encounter and shared their passion for these graceful and amazing creatures. This is definitely an experience... More
