A Must Do
Brandy_K

I’m going to be honest, it was a chilly windy day in Florida (54 degrees) and and I was having second thoughts. They assured me that the 5mm wetsuits would keep me warm and the water was always around 72 degrees. So glad I didn’t back out! Our guides were extremely knowledgeable and new exactly where to go to avoid the congestion of other groups. Soooo many manatees, it was unbelievable. Highly recommend!!!

We saw so many amazing manatees up close and personal. Even in January, the thick 5mm wetsuits our tour provided kept us warm and floating. We appreciated the hot drinks and the shower facilities at the end of the tour!

I’ve done a manatee tour before with a different company 5 years ago that was good but the one was better I got to see more manatees then the one I did years ago. This one was also pretty affordable.

The manatees were so friendly so curious. If you remained calm they would come up and smell you. They were so gentle Its like they wanted to be friends . It almost reminded me of a puppy.A wonderful experience I won't. ever forget.

This trip was AMAZING! We saw 100s of manatees and we were so close to many of them. The guide was awesome and you always feel safe and in good hands. I really recommend this trip, all six of us feel that we had the experience of our life that day! Frida from Sweden

Must do tour!!!!

This is a MUST DO TOUR!!! Laura and Mark were such awesome guides! Not only were they fun and energetic, but so patient and kind to anyone who was nervous snorkeling. They were very knowledgeable and certified scuba instructors so everyone felt very safe with them. Also, Adventure center uses the thickest wet suits (5mm unlike all the other tours who use 3mm) so we were warm and floaty. The manatees were INCREDIBLE!!! Some of them come right up to you and snuggle right in. They were like giant water puppies! I can’t stress enough how fun this experience was!!!! 100% worth it!

Manatee magic
Dave_H
, Dec 2021
We went at 7 AM and it was raining in the low 60s. We weren’t sure what was going to happen? We found out cold weather brings in the manatees from the ocean to warm up in the springs. It was a magical experience we will never forget. Our guides were knowledgeable and eco minded. We saw other outfits harassing the manatees. Plantation Adventures respected and modeled good behavior. Highly recommend this company!

Need private changing rooms
Allan_G
, Dec 2021
Experience was very good. Lots of manatee’s. The facilities however for changing clothes was atrocious!!! Needs looking at for privacy purposes for the huge amount of people that pass through this venue. You either get changed in a toilet or in a shower with curtain in front or in an open changing room where the entrance door opens into it and exposes anyone getting changed in the open area. I was shocked when I opened the door to see a fully naked man standing in full view of the open door. If a single parent took took an opposite sex child or children here, there is no protection for the child from being exposed to this. People need private changing rooms to stop this from happening. Otherwise it is a fantastic experience.
