Very nicely done!!! Our friver was charming and informative. Great experience
This was worth every penny! We got to see the manitees up close and personal, the sanctuary was beautiful and the boat ride was exhilarating! Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor, which made the time in the bus go fast. Make sure to get the wetsuits!
I'd highly recommend this tour for anyone-I know we'll be doing it again the next time we're in Florida!
Swim with manatees spoiled by attitude of boat captain. Obsessed with rules and regulations about swimming with manatees. Visit to homosassa park good, but a bit short amount of time. Airboat ride good. Probably will not take this trip again.
It was an excellent experience.
This tour was amazing!
There were so much to see with so little time... the bus came late to pick us at the hotel. When we reached Kennedy space centre, we had less than an hour to explore before the lunch with the astronaut. The lunch was not bad, but we had to rush as there was a photo taking session after that. The tour off site was fantastic but we had too little time to enjoy the rest of the place. I would recommend you skip the lunch with the astronaut if you want more time to explore the whole place. We still enjoyed ourselves though but it could have been better if we have more time.
Our family took the tour to Clearwater Beach Day Trip with Sea Screamer tour and it was simply AWESOME!! We were in Florida for a week and visited many of the park attractions in Orlando but the trip to Clearwater was the best day of fun!!! Highly recommend to anyone.
We had a great time.
My daughter and I enjoyed it!! We would definitely do it again. Great service. Loved the limo ride
Was a great tour.
Awesome day trip!!!! Loved Clearwater Beach.
A fantastic day - very informative and courteous driver. Could have had an extra hour at the Space Centre, however, the dining with an astronaut experience was a highlight of our holiday.
This trip was amazing and the tour guides were really helpful. Only downside I can see is there wasn't enough time for us to look at everything!
Would have liked more info as to what we were seeing along the way eg: names of areas and sights passed through.
The swim with the manatees was not what I was expecting but was worth the trip. They are amazing. The guides were very helpful. The airboat ride was not as great as I had hoped for but was fun. I would defiantly do it again.
Not worth a star as your advertising was misleading. Did not have time at KSC to do all that was advertised. You advertised that we would be picked up between 6.30 and 7.00 am. It was 8.20 am. The bus left at 5 pm and KSC closed at 6 pm. Two hours was missed to see everything.
Why this is a great deal...

Swimming with the manatees is a cool experience and everyone's trip will be different because of the natural environment, but Captain Jesse was great at locating them. About 60 manatees live in the springs year round, so we saw several with babies even in May. We were instructed not to touch them. The trip included an all you can eat breakfast at Ponderosa Steakhouse 6.99, the guided snorkel tour with gear on line from 35 to 55, admission to Homosassa Springs Wildlife Park 13, sack lunch 5, airboat ride and pictures holding baby alligator 40. Add to this the cost of transportation, including gas, it's a bargain! Our guide was Madeline she was fun and gave us a lot of history of the area and Florida. We also watched movies going down and coming back which made time fly.
Mike was a great tour guide. Very funny and knowledgeable. Astronaut lunch was fabulous and very entertaining as well as educational. Bus drivers at Kennedy bordered on rude sometimes, so it was nice to get back to the dolphin bus and Mike.
The guide for the manatees was excellent, we got close up to several. The springs were beautiful, a very peaceful place. The airboat ride was lots of fun- we saw alligators and other wildlife and enjoyed flying across the water. All in all, one of the best ways to see another side of Florida.
Best Day of our Vacation!!! The tour guide was great...Caption Jessie at Crystal River was awesome....the Manatees were just amazon...the state park zoo was lots of fun...and the air boat ride at Wild Bills was a blast...I would totally recommend this day trip!!!
Was a little disappointed with the swim to be honest. I was expecting lots of interaction however only one manatee was spotted and it didn't want anything to do with the group. Not allowed to follow them either meant only a limited viewing.
The air boat ride was fantastic and the highlight.
I had an excellent time on my day trip and I plan on doing that again soon!
Do you go to St. Augustine,FL?
Great tour! Such a wonderful experience from beginning to end. The lunch was terrific and had good conversation with those sitting at my table. The bus driver was good, though a little hard to understand sometimes with a thick Cuban accent—but she had great information to share during the drive and nice tips to get the most out of the Space Center. I would do this tour again!
It was great! The ride home was very long due to traffic, but the tour driver was great from start to finish. He was always friendly and professional. He went our of his way to make sure everyone was taken care of and knew what was going on. I believe his name was Clark and he did an outstanding job. His company should make sure they keep him!!
excellent tour especially if you only have one day to spend there. the kids ages 11 and 13 absolutely loved it. They wanted to go back another day. there is so much to see.
