This trip was fabulous! The guide and boat captain were very friendly and informative. They put us right where we needed to be to see the manatee. Although the experience is a bit different in the summer from what I expected, it was still wonderful. We also kayaked over to Three Sisters Springs. That place was a MUST SEE!
