Omggggg. What can I say this was by far the best experience I've ever had, to sum it up magical! Cliché but true. First off the guide and caption Maddie and Tim awesome. The store clean and warm inviting front desk person(sorry forgot her name). They have a wide range of sizes for wetsuits which I was happy about, I'm a bigger girl so they had some that fit. 2nd I'm not a good swimmer so they made me feel comfortable and confident knowing that the guide was able to help me when I needed it. Was able to find a spot out in the river and we swam with the manatee and the baby calf. Then my favorite part swimming in the crystal clear water omg amazing! 😲 I mean this place was amazing, from the booking to the end all amazing the pricing was very good as well. Loved it all and will do it again if I am ever back in Florida.

Chris and Madi were great. They did not throw us in with the larger groups, but patiently searched and let Us enjoy our swim with the Manatees. They were very knowledgeable and friendly. Definitely recommend Explorida.

We went mid July and had the greatest experience!!! The pictures are pure treasures that the guides took!! Very organized! Clean changing areas and informative film at start! Boat ride was great in such a beautiful area and the snorkeling and manatee experience was wonderful!! One of the manatees was so playful rolling on it’s back as if it was a puppy!! Maddie, Kirsten and captain Chris were great!! Thanks so much for a fabulous memory!!
