There are several alternatives available but we chose this one because we felt our money would go towards the restoration and maintenance of the area. Our Captain was friendly, knowlegable and experienced and gave a good narration to accompany the tour.

We went on the first tour of the day so the wind had not kicked up. Our captain and First mate (Cheeseman) were great at finding dolphins and manatees as well as bird life. Highly recommended.

BEWARE! The national park service does not run these boats. A concessionaire does - and advertises many scheduled boat tours that DO NOT exist. Therefore - before you reserve online on the website - call the concessionaire to find out if your selected tour actually...More
