Found manatees in July!

Very friendly staff. We decided to go with a tour instead of just renting a kayak because it's off season and we knew manatees would be scarce. APDC networked with the staff of other groups to take us straight to a mother and calf. Everyone had a great time.

Awesome Time!

Fantastic Experience! 🥰 Had momma and baby manatee all to myself for about 15mins before mud-puppies found me. 😉 Thank you very much Captain Rod!

Fun and exactly what I was hoping for!

Crew was enthusiastic and encouraging. We were able to see and swim with a manatee despite it being considered the off-season. All crew seemed to have a good understanding of regulations surrounding manatees and ensured the animals were treated with respect throughout the trip

Must do!

We had a great tour with Ryan and Vinny! Knowledgeable guys with a genuine love for wildlife incl. manatees. Must do when you’re in the neighborhood.
