great little cruise
Thomas_G

we booked this trip for mothers day and were hoping to see some dolphins or manatees. the weather was good, but a bit windy. The check in was easy and the office staff were very friendly and organized. we met our Captain, Brad and hoped aboard our boat. We were hoping for a pontoon boat like in the picture but ended up with a regular boat. The boat was roomy and ran well, just got a little cooked out i the sun. Capt. Brad did a great job even thought we didn't get see see any dolphins, he made it up to us by taking us for a really cool cruise in the Mangroves and explained all bout the plants, and animal life in the keys. I would do this trip again. Everyone in our group was happy with our trip.

Essentially a $60 boat ride

Few manatees, lots of mangroves. Mostly a boat ride. I have no more to say allow me to submit.......... ..
icon Response from Host , Apr 2022
Our eco tours are a 90 minute boat ride through the mangroves to learn about the mangrove eco system, get some history on the Florida Keys and look for animals. Wildlife is never a guarantee as they are animals in their natural habitat but it sounds like you were fortunate enough to see manatees.

Our guide knew his eco info well! We learned a lot on the eco tour, but could have done without the political commentary thrown in with the eco facts. Nice being on a small boat rather than the large tour boats.

Eco trip
Pattie_E
, Mar 2022
We were disappointed on the boat. We thought it would be a pontoon boat not a fishing boat.. This boat was not easy for people with diablities to get in. The day was over cast. The capt did not provide much info except if a question was asked. He showed us the place he went to drink. He even acted like might have had a drink or two before taking us out. Not a pleasant trip been on better eco trip with the same weather.

What a great tour. My husband and I were the only ones on the boat with Captain John and he did a wonderful job. My main goal was to see a manatee and he made it happen. He was very congenital and knowledgeable of the Keys. Can’t wait to go again

We saw 5 manatees. One really large one by itself, there were also a group of 4 (2 adults& 2 babies), they appeared to be bonding with each other. We traveled through a huge mangrove sanctuary. There were dozens of iguanas of every size & color. Just amazing. Captain Tommy was very knowledgeable and added to our experience with personal stories and history. To us a 10+ adventure.
