They have a cool little shop right downtown and you pay there then meet their kids down at the water and they provide the gear. It was a great experience!

Really enjoyed having the freedom to see Manatees on our own away from some of the other snarky boat tour groups! Saw plenty of manatees and enjoyed a leisurely paddle. Kind & patient family owned and operated business, well run. Thanks!
