Captain Bill was a great host! This part of the trip ended up being the highlight of our vacation. Swimming with the Manatees was amazing. Captain Bill made the kids feel comfortable and told my non-swimming wife a lot of entertaining stories about the area. We saw manatees in the bay, but even better in the crystal clear springs, where Bill gave us plenty of time to snorkel and see the manatees as well as the many fish and turtles in the water!

Captain Traci was absolutely wonderful. We were really looking forward to our adventure with the manatees, but had some reservations about the snorkeling part of the adventure. Traci helped Ronnie and was patient with him until he felt completely comfortable enough to venture out. She took great care of us and made sure that we got to see all we wanted to experience on our vacation. It was so very amazing that six hours flew by and left us talking about our next trip. The manatees were absolutely amazing and swimming with them and was an experience unlike any other and beyond words. Traci took the time to explain about the local wildlife and show us things we wouldn't have noticed on our own being from Ohio. She went above and beyond and we would recommend her tours to anyone looking for someone who cares about the manatees as well as other wildlife and wants to feel completely at ease and one with nature.
Thank you again TRACI!!!! We can't wait to see you again.

Thank you so very much for making our trip to Florida INCREDIBLE!! We were three moms from Indiana taking our 13 yr olds on a Mother Daughter spring break trip. Sometimes it is hard to impress teenage girls but our trip with Captain Bill exceeding both mom and daughters expectations. We had a fabulous encounter with a curious manatee that seemed to take a liking to my daughter, Holly. The picture attached, which was taken and emailed to us by Captain Bill, says it all.

After playing with the manatees, Captain Bill took us into extremely clear water to do some snorkeling. The girls were absolutely thrilled. Being from Indiana, they had never had the opportunity to snorkel before. They loved seeing all the fish.

It was clear Native Vacations is very passionate about conservation which we sincerely appreciated. We can’t thank Native Vacations or Captain Bill enough for a wonderful experience.

What an amazing experience! Captain Traci you ROCK! She taught us what to do and what not to do all with having fun and showings us around the bay area and Manatees! Every time we have visitors in the area from up north... we will always book our trips with her! You can really tell that she loves what she does and is truly passionate about the water and the safety of the Manatees. Thank you for an awesome trip out in the bay!!!

"WOW" says it all. Capt. Traci is a very careing and teaching person of the manatee. She taught my wife and I to snorkel and made us feel safe on the water. She is a asset to her group. Capt. Traci is number 1....

This was a truly amazing Mother's Day gift from my daughter, Lisa. The two of us, along with my granddaughter, Shea, spent the day swimming with the manatees. Capt. Traci taught us everything we needed to know so that we could enjoy this trip to the fullest. The same day we took the dolphin tour with her, that was fantastic. Thank you Traci for making this a truly memorable Mother's Day for me. This is one lady who truly enjoys her work.

THANK YOU!!!!

Captain Tracy is amazing! I didn't want to get into the water and she continued to gently encourage me. Once I did get in and was so very close to the graceful creatures, I was so happy that she had encouraged me. What a great experience with such a fun-loving, passionate about her work, lady!

Thank you so much!!

On July 22 my friend Vanessa and I took a dolphin cruise with my 2 year old son Lucas and 10 year old niece Brianna. We were on the boat with Traci and we had a blast...it took some time to track down the dolphins, but Traci kept us involved and laughing until she spotted the first dolphin. It was amazing. However the reason I am writing this is even more wonderful than seeing the dolphins alone. My son was just riding in his wooden rocking boat when be started yelling, "dolphins, Mumma I see dolphins!" it took me a minute to realize he didn't mean his stuffed dolphin, but was pretending to be back on the boat with Traci looking behind the boat at the "dolphins" with a huge smile on his face just as we had almost a month ago. This experience left an impression on my son and one that he will no doubt remember forever! Thank you so much for this wonderful moment!
