Typical Day


Tours meet at our shop at 6:15AM to gear up with mask, snorkel, fins, and wetsuit. Next, we show a short video on the do's and dont's of interacting with manatee, give an orientation with tips on how to have a great encounter, then walk out the door onto our boats. We head out to the springs, get into the water, and pet & play with these amazing creatures.While on board, we offer complimentary coffee, tea, hot chocolate, donuts, and juice drinks. Our Coast Guard inspected boats are fully enclosed in the winter for your comfort and have porta-potties and changing rooms. Our USCG licensed Captains get into the water with you each day to supervise, help out, and shoot a video of your encounter. Back at the shop after the 3-4 hour tour, we play the video so you can watch yourself and have a chance to get a copy.

Age range, type of group


These encounters are for any and all who aren't afraid of the water. Although we don't give snorkeling classes as part of the trip, we can offer assistance. Wetsuits make you "as buoyant as a cork", so weak swimmers and non-snorkelers really have nothing to worry about.Children must be accompanied by an adult. Age 6 is a good age to start, but hundreds of younger children have had great trips. Remember that the Captain will be in the water, so if any children want to return to the boat, an adult will need to go back, too. Many parents of younger children alternate this role.Our typical day sees mixed groups, couples, families, singles, and people of all ages.

Sleeping and meals


There are numerous hotels, motels, and campgrounds in the area. We recommend the Planatation Resort or Days Inn both with in about a mile of us and on the same side of the same road. Tell them you're going out with us for special rates! Crackers family restaurant is 3 doors from ours and offers an excellent mix of seafood and family fare including the best burgers in town.

Policies & Restrictions


We place no restrictions on our passengers age or gender, but it is a boating and snorkeling trip, so you must be physically able to board. We do not allow smoking on board the boats. Pets are not allowed.

Rates


Our tours cost $45.00 per person. You get a mask, snorkel, fins and wetsuit included in this cost. DVD videos are available for $35
