MANATEES!!!!!!!nMy boyfriend and I had so much fun. We called several other tour guides in the area but when we found Captain Parker, we knew we were on to something great. Do your research, believe me its worth it. These guys cater to small groups, that was a plus.nCaptain Parker hooked us up with one of the most incredible days EVER!!! We seen and swam with 9 manatees in a beautiful cove. Also, Parker got us a great deal and a discount on our hotel stay at Riverside Resort. This day was awesome.
Had a great time yesterday with Captain Gene and his team. WOW what an awesome day!!!! We called Friday night to set up a Sunday tour with these guys and was told we would be on the Crystal River. It was out of this world. Captain Chris did a fantastic job, he found manatees very quickly. This was one of the best tours that my family and I have been on while in Florida. Although my pictures were a little hazy... we had a blast. No parks here, just raw good fun
Hello everyone, I thought I would share my Manatee day with you. After reading lots of reviews and calling around to find a good Manatee tour guide for me and my family. (I must say there are several guides in the area). The few guides we talked to, seamed eager to take our money and offer discounts, but when we spoke with Captain Parker, he was firm on his prices and took the time to explain the whole encounter from start to finish. Captain Parker was funny, informative, firm and confident about his tours. So I took the plunge (pun-intended) and booked with Captain Parker and his team. We had an amazing time, we felt as if we were part of his life and family. The manatees were incredibly huge, awesome and even brought a tear joy to my eye. This was a relaxing day before we drove back to Michigan - We truly fell in love with the Manatees. I would recommend trying this while you are in Florida.nnSincerely Stefona
We were on the 12 noon Manatee Mania Tour and had a superb experience with Captain Bryan! He did a fantastic job finding us 4 manatees in total and were really nice guys! We took this tour last April and are coming back again this January, and most likely be booking the all day private, we are obsessed with manatees. There was a lot of information given on the manatees and overall the tour seemed to be very respectful to the mammals.nAlso thanks to the ladies at the office! All the staff from check-in to the captain, I can’t imagine that there is a better company out there to experience the gentle giants!
I can not believe the size of these animals, Manatees are huge!!!!! We had a great time. From the moment we arrived until we returned back to Orlando. My kids ( 4,8, and 9) and my wife have not stopped talking about the Manatees. I would highly recommend this to anyone. These tour guides were respectful, kind and truly seamed interested in our experience.
