Best part of my trip. Professional treatment from start to finish. The equipment was top shelf too, We will be back and hope to get Matt and Wade. Can’t say enough about the service and personal attention. Nice job on the photos as well.

The tour staff was excellent. Unfortunately they can't do anything about a lack of manatees to see given the warm weather and water temperatures. They would have gotten 5 stars but it's hard to say that when we only saw a mother and baby sleeping.

We found a mama and calf and was able to spend several minutes with them while she snacked. It was awesome!

We went the last week in March. We saw some manatee's from the boat but most had already gone. Much different than the last time we went - but we had gone in February on a previous trip. This time there was a lot of in and out of the water without seeing any manatees. We did have opportunity to snorkel and spend time in a couple of springs with a wide variety of fish, which was a huge amount of fun.
Captains were terrific.

Fantastic trip! We took the first trip of the day, it was still dark when we left, but we were the first boat out in the springs area. We had a wonderful time snorkeling with the Manatees! We saw about 8 of them, as well as many interesting fish, in the crystal clear springs. The guide took lots of photos, so we didn't worry about a camera. This was a very fun trip and a unique experience! You don't want to miss it!

It was an amazing experience my partner and I really enjoyed. We had the opportunity to see the manatees very close and spent enough time with these exotic and friendly animals. The guides were really good too. The water is very clear as the name Clear Water says... I would say the whole experience was fantastic and we are happy because of this.

What a great experience! We saw a lot of Manatees and we were lucky enough to have them interact with us! We even got to see baby Manatees! The guide Crystal was amazing and told us about the manatees as well as took several photos of our group with the manatees. The captain John was very helpful as well and shared his knowledge of the animals and area too. We enjoyed hot cocoa on the boat and had a great trip. Well worth going and the barring the cold weather!

This is a well organized outfit. They have everything on hand that you will need including complimentary hot chocolate and coffee. They prepare you well for what you will be doing and the guides keep track of their people. Everyone is friendly and helpful. The manatees? Yes! They were there and we were taught how to get very close without disturbing them. Great tour!
