Everything was great on the tour! The meeting point is easy to find. We got there and everything was fine, we just had to wait for our time slot. The guide was super nice (Shana Banana) and so was the captain of the boat. Everything went well on our tour! No complaints

I had a greasy experience and was able to get up and close with the Manatees. That said, you don’t “swim” with them. You actually float and let them come to you!!! The quieter and still you are the better!

This was such an incredible experience! Trish and Wade was our team today and they were informative, friendly and professional! We will definitely be back again!

Excellent knowledgeable guides who were able to lead us to swim with many manatee! We used River Ventures twice during our trip.

Everything was great from start to finish. Manatees where cute and fat.
