This may have been one of the coolest things I got to experience ever. Our captain Russ was super nice and told great stories about the area and made the tour even better. I 100% recommend this tour if you are in the area it was well worth the money.

Amazing experience. Request Justin as your captain!! The tour was great! We did the “swim in Manatee and Dolphin Lagoon tour.” We had an exceptional day! The dolphins and manatees are not always visible in these tours but we went on an awesome day! We saw the dolphins jump out of the water, there was a mommy and baby… it was amazing!!! Justin is the real reason we had an amazing experience!
