    We had Johnathan as our guide! He was very easy going and knowledgeable. We got SO close to multiple manatees AND we got to pet them, saw dolphins, and had a blast. Will definitely be back!

    The weather shortened our tour but Chris was good! We saw many manatee, dolphins and birds. It was perfect until rain and thunder interrupted.

    Our tour guide was amazing and knowledgeable about the wildlife and surroundings. He made the trip so much fun and entertaining. He made sure we had enough time to truly take in the experience being surrounded by manatees. I would absolutely go again, worth every penny!!

    My daughter and I had a great time. Jacob our tour guide taught us about the area, the different birds and especially the manatees. We saw so many manatees. One came so close to the kayak and just looked up at my daughter. It was really cute. It was wonderful to see the animals in their natural habitat. Would do it again!

    We had a fantastic kayak tour near Cocoa Beach. We saw an alligator, dolphins and the manatees swam right next to our kayaks! Chris and Mishawn were excellent tour guides. They kept us safe and gave us some great history and info about the area. I would definitely recommend this adventure!

    Saw a lot of manatees! Sebastian was a great guide really knew the area and history. Paddled around for almost two hours. No dolphins, but saw some in the distance.

    We had a great time doing the dolphin/manatee tour. We saw a TON of manatees and we’re able to get right next to them. I highly recommend going.

    My parents and our family of 5 booked this tour hopeful that we'd get to see some wild life. My 9 yr old daughter was praying we'd get to see some manatees. This experience did not disappoint. We saw multiple manatees and even had a few dolphins swim in and visit us😁 Our guide Bree was patient, interactive, and helpful. We will be recommending her specifically to our friends and family in the future!

    Bri was our tour guide and she is amazing. We felt very welcome and knew we were in good hands. She was very informative and taught us everything we needed to know. The tour itself was very fun and did not seem like two hours. We had four kids between the ages 9-13 and they had a blast. We will definitely be back and will be asking for her if possible. Thank you, Bri!
