Great wildlife sighting with easygoing, experienced guide. 4 dolphins played around our boat for 30 mins. Dozen bird species incl. pink spoonbill, gators. Note that manatees haven’t been seen in the region since Irma. May come back in spring.

This was so much fun, from the boat ride itself to the excellent local guide with his knowledge of local fauna. And, yes, we saw a family of manatees.

Fantastic morning on the water with Capt David who was very knowledgeable and had the best 'eagle' eye for spotting wildlife. Saw a Mum and baby Manatee, Alligator and dolphins plus enjoyed 'shell island' complete with turtle nests. Boat was very comfortable, has shade for those who need it and is very stable. Perfect activity for everyone, especially families.

What an amazing day we had! Perfect timing with the weather, too. There were 5 of us on the boat and between all of us this is what we saw among the 10,000 Islands:
Red Mangroves, Black Mangroves, several manatees, including an incredible viewing of a momma and her baby...a newborn just days old riding on her back, 1 stingray, a Lemonhead shark, a few dolphins, a rat snake and various birds even tho most have migrated already there were still plenty of pelicans, white egrets, blue heron, spoonbills and an eagle. saltlifebeauty Thanks, Patrick for setting this weekend up for us

Captain Carl on our boat was excellent ! He took time to find manatees, point out alligators on the shore, and explain the various birds we saw. Great trip !

Our Captain was gracious, knowledgable, and considerate of our needs. We picked a very windy day and he was careful to provide us with a great trip as well as being cautious about our safety. Our family consisted of three generations with the youngest being 3 years old. Everyone had a wonderful time seeing dolphins, manatees, and many birds. The three hours went by quickly and we look forward to a return trip on our next vacation.

My sisters and I took this trip on a gorgeous, sunny, South Florida Friday, at the 12:45 PM timeslot. Captain Steve was knowledgeable and easy to talk to, and provided helpful info on the plants and animals we saw. Whitehorse Key is a lovely little island out at the edge of the Gulf, and we were able to find some interesting shells to bring back with us. The sand is soft and white, and the Gulf a light aqua. While we didn't see much in the way of manatees, we were extremely fortunate to have a bottlenose dolphin join us as we headed back to the marina. He or she played around our boat for several minutes, diving under it and swimming alongside, clearing out its blowhole when surfacing. It was the highlight of our trip! There is also an osprey nest in the hotel parking lot, which had chicks in it. Make sure you check out the nest, too!
