The crew was very friendly. They try to give you best possible experience. JJ and David were great, they were entertaining, talking about the animals, while they were looking for manatees. Very nice experience, saw manatees from close :).

We loved our trip. Gary did a wonderful job and even though there were not very many manatees out we had a blast. He also took us to see some springs that were hidden away. We will be coming back!
