Before You Go, You Need to Know…

Florida Manatees are heavily protected by the Florida Wildlife Commission and there are rules and regulations that must be followed for this imperiled creature to remain a natural resource for all to enjoy.  

Manatees are protected by the Marine Mammal Protection Act of 1972, the Endangered Species Act of 1973, and the Florida Manatee Sanctuary Act of 1978. It is illegal to feed, harass, harm, pursue, hunt, shoot, wound, kill, annoy, or molest manatees. 

Our experienced team of staff, in-water guides, and seasoned captains are local experts on how to best view and swim with these ancient creatures. We offer both public and private tours with limited capacity, as well as the largest selection of personal watercraft on the gulf coast.
