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.
