My mother and I went on this excursion with hopes of seeing a manatee for the first time! We saw 3 manatees, many alligators, birds, ospreys! Captain Rich was able to provide helpful hints on spotting the manatees and was a wealth of knowledge about manatees, the everglades, etc! Would highly recommend.

We enjoyed a 1 1/2 hour boat tour with Jim as our Captain. He was very knowledgeable and friendly while searching for manatees for us to see. We saw a mom and baby as well as a larger male. There was also a 12 foot alligator and several birds. He made sure we were able to get pictures of everything... More

My family and I decided to go on this tour while in Florida and we had so much fun! Captain Storm found a small group of manatees within the first few minutes. I've never seen manatees before so this trip was so awesome, especially being able to see the baby manatees. We also saw several alligators and lots of birds.... More

We had a wonderful time looking for manatees and also seeing many other fish, birds, and alligators. In the end I believe we saw 5 or 6 manatees. Captain Stormy was extremely insightful and knowledgeable about all the wildlife and related well to our entire party, which included two older ladies, one special needs young adult, and one college freshman....

We had a super tour our guides were knowledgeable and well trained. The group was a manageable size. They kept us informed of the area and knew where to find the manatees. We saw several manatees including one swimming right underneath us and a mama and baby feeding. Wonderful experience.

I went on an excursion with my 94 year old mother and her friend to Naples. It was a lovely trip and one of the highlights was touring the waters for manatees and other wildlife with Captain Jim. We saw many manatees, an alligator and lots of birds. It was thoroughly enjoyable and very reasonably priced.

Jim was a great guide. He is a licensed naturalist and a warehouse of information about the local waters and animals. We went on this 90-minute boat ride on 11/28/16. Jim knew right where the manatees would be and we saw several right alongside the boat. We wanted to see alligators and birds as well, so he took us right... More

I would highly recommend the tour to anybody who is interested in the nature of the mangroves in general and in the manatees in particular. The tour was a great way to see manatees up close, we saw maybe ten of them, several of them up close, one being a baby. Captain Kent also made the journey interesting and fun,... More

Capt Jersey Jim gave us a great tour of the area and we saw three manatees. Two adults and a calf. Jersey Jim was very informative and pleasant. When we could not see manatees he was giving us fascinating facts about the wild life and vegetation that we were looking at. We saw two alligators as well. I would highly... More
