It was a good time. Captain Ron and the young woman (I forget her name) we’re great, and I highly recommend them.

Captain Ron and Lauren were great! Getting ready with our instructions and our wet suits at the business first was really good compared to trying to do on the boat. We had a great time, learned a lot, not just about manatees but also about the local life, springs and much more. It was a highlight of our trip! The smaller operation was much more personal and less competitive to see the marine life. Thank you so much!

We did not go during peak season, our Captain and guide worked hard to find the Manatees for us to swim with. They were very personable and knowledgeable. Our guide, Lauren was amazing and very patient! She put us right up with these amazing gentle giants. She did a wonderful job taking pictures and video for us to being home. We will cherish This memorable experience for our lifetime. We also loved the small group experience. We will book with them again in the future.

Our guide Ron was excellent--safe, infornative and fun. A Coast Guard veteran, Ron presented safety issues clearly for me and my kids (10 & 12). He was fun and informative, and as a dad himself, kept my kids interested and paced our activities perfectly. We saw manatees (in the off season) and he took great photos and videos, plus we had the best snorkeling experience we've ever had--diving down to the springs, seeing schools of fish and a turtle in addition to the manatees. My kids and I loved our experience and it is highly, highly recommended.

A once in a lifetime experience. There’s so many companies to choose from and I read through so many reviews before choose gulf coast expeditions. Best decision ever. We took the 6:30 slot even through we were driving from almost 2 hours away because it seemed like our best chance to see more activity. Right from the start Lauren was great at making us feel welcomed and explaining the details on what to expect. Little did we know we were in for an amazing treat. The cruise around the bay was just beautiful as we tried to find Manatees. Ron made great conversation as we searched and we could just tell he was a pro at finding these guys after years and years of experience. Once we found them and got in the water, no one in our group of 4 was prepared for the time we would have with these gentle giants. Lauren was amazing in the water with us and gave us great instructions as we went. The manatees were so intimate and filled with so much personality. We’ve traveled all over and this has got to be one of our top 5 experiences. Words really just can’t capture what we experienced. We will definitely be back with our 4 kids and we will definitely be back with Ron and Lauren!

Being surrounded by 4-5 manatee at one time. Seen a baby nursing it's mom. Going to the three sisters nature spring. Was leased and impressed with there knowledge of the manatee and how to find them. Diving in the three sister springs was a bonus. Top notch guide and experience. Being from nitro Wv terry

Superior experience despite the fact that is was off season and poor water conditions due to excessive rains for a long period of time. He located manatees in clear water. Our guide was extremely concerned with the well being of the manatees in addition to the quality of the people’s experience. The captain’s long experience in the coast guard gave us another level of confidence so we could just enjpt

Great experience. We came in the summer when there weren’t a ton of manatee but our captain found some for us to swim with and then took us to three sister spring which was incredible. The captain and guide were super friendly and knowledgeable and great with our kids (age 10,12,14). It was nice it was a small group - I would highly recommend them to people looking to swim with the manatee.
