If you are debating doing this. Don’t!!! Absolutely amazing experience. The dive shop crew knew exactly where to look For manatees and it was an amazing experience to be that close. We got to see a big matured one then a baby and it’s mama. Oh it was stunning to see and be apart of the baby being so content in its environment. We were lucky the water was clearer where the baby and it’s mama was. We also saw a sting ray and lots of different types of fish. And then don’t even get me started on the airboat ride!!!! JUST WOW!!!! We only saw one little crocodile but it was awesome to be gliding along the Everglades. And so thrilling. I will say breakfast isn’t fresh on the bus but the lunch was amazing. The cheeseburger was fresh and meaty and I be never seen fries like that in my life. But they were delicious!!!

This was amazing!! First time to Florida on our honeymoon and we just showed up with our tickets and paid for parking and they took care of the rest! We had Luiz as a guide and he was knowledgeable and funny and made the trip great! Our manatee instructors were Gina and Andrew and they were fabulous! We saw lots of manatees (at least 10) and got to swim with them! The only suggestion I have is to bring some $5’s, $10’s, $20’s for tips! And a warm change of clothes if it’s chilly! Our trip was about 8.5 hours total (8am-4:30pm) but time varies I think! Would definitely do it again!!!

Company texted to confirm pick up location and time. Charter bus picked us up right on time. Bagged continental breakfast was a pastry, granola bar, fruit cup, juice, and water. Manatee tour group in Crystal River (famous birds dive center) was wonderful. Saw 4-5 manatees. Lunch was good (KC wine and koffee bar). Air boat ride was really fun. Long day though (we were the last stop) 8:30a-7:30p. Bus guide didn’t look at the paperwork before she handed it out and so everyone got someone else’s lunch sign up. Frustrating but ultimately not a big deal.

All very professional but also friendly. Fantastic experience, most amazing birthday present for me, would recommend this trip to all people who love and respect our wildlife. Saw a mother and baby which was the high light and having the guide take pictures makes it a memory to treasure. Don’t mind that there are few facilities for changing but it Would be nice to have more than one toilet there.

We loved our day! A great time on an airboat, and a magical time in Crystal River. We were with Mia and Mike who were awesome. Even though we were there in August, we were able to see several manatees and it was a great experience. Go for it!
