The trip went as advertised, the boat captain and snorkel leader were very nice & knowledgeable, always on hand to watch over the group and to answer questions. It is a no frills trip, just what I signed up for.
Good experience. Guide is very patient.
It was a very nice and relaxing day, with two great tourguides. And with beautifull manatees! We were able to make some nice photos and video’s. Thank you very much for this day that we will always remember!
We had a really great time. Saw lots of Manatees and Captain Randy and our guide, Caleb were fantastic
The young guide was great! His name is Josh. However there were not enough manatee to see and I would insist on wearing flippers as they help you move faster.
Easy transaction and super friendly crew. We were first taken to Three Sisters Springs to test out our gear and float around gazing and the underwater world, then we were taken to see some manatees. I went in not expecting to see much since it's off season and super excited we got to swim with a mom and her calf. Very awesome experience on eclipse day! :) Thanks so much for the adventure!!!
Truly incredible tailor made experience. Will do it again!
We went in mid-August, not exactly the height of Manatee-sighting season. Owner's son was our captain and guide. He was very knowledgeable and we were able to snorkel near several,manatees. The folks were super friendly and helpful.
Great Captain, knew the area and found the manatees!
It was a great experience. Our captain knew what he was talking about. Told us a lot about the manatees.
We were very satisfied with our trip. The captain was nice and kind, very friendly, we had a great time. We would choose you again. Thank you!
Very pleasant afternoon with a very knowledgeable captain who managed to find a couple of manatee for us to snorkel with and showed us around the different springs. Not the best time of year for seeing manatee and clear water, but a good experience nonetheless.
Très bon rapport qualité / prix. Une magnifique excursion avec captain Georges. Merci beaucoup
Thank you for the nice trip, it made a lot of fun for us. Best regards, Yvonne and Matt
Everyone was very understanding of us being held up and then the encouragement given to the kids and less confident adults was great. It was awesome to see the Manatee and that everyone saw one. It was also great snorkelling in the three sister springs regardless of Manatee presence or not. Relaxing, picturesque, a great learning experience and memory. Thank you.
loved it. Must come back in winter to see more manatees!
We registered online, wee told to be there by 7:45 and no one showed up till after 8:00- no apology, just- oh well we never come before 8:00 So it should be changed on the online info. Captain was great, and we were pleased with overall tour.
Even though our arrival to Crystal River was at the end of the Manatee season, the captain took us to several spots in search of manatees. We found a few and also visited the Three Sisters Springs. Very Nice!
My daughter was given a diving suit way to big &was to nice to complain. It kept falling off & filling with water.
Had a great snorkeling tour. Thanks again...
Was a great experience , friendly guide and captain .
Very helpful shop staff and boat captain. Knowledgeable and friendly. We did find our "escort" in the water somewhat uncommunicative and not very friendly. Despite this we loved our adventure with you, and the facilities.
You act like you knew what you were doing. Very mellow, took good care of younger kids. No stress at all.
Only 1 Small area to go in the water with too many people
The gentleman operating the boat was so pleasant and answered any question anyone had. I thought it was really nice that he tried to find some manatees in a more private setting for the group first before heading to the more populated area. When we got there we never felt rushed and just couldn't believe how many manatees we saw. Fantastic trip and I would highly recommend you guys. Thank you so much. I will be returning with my nieces
Boat captains were very knowledgeable of the area and very patient with gen group. It wa a great relaxing trip and we saw a lot of Manatees
