Manatee Tour Rates & Reservation Policy


RESERVATION POLICY:  Reservations should be made well in advance to secure your seats on one of our tour boats. We specialize in small groups (up to 11 per boat) but can accomodate larger parties. If you prefer, we also offer Private Manatee Tours for a more intimate experience. A credit card is required to hold reservations. We accept VISA, MASTER CARD and DISCOVER. We have a 7-day cancellation policy for small groups and a 14-day cancellation policy for groups of over 8 persons. Cancellation fees apply on short notice cancellations. This is consistent with most airlines, hotels and charter-type businesses. We make a commitment to you and make ourselves available, so we ask that you do the same for us! Thank you for your understanding. Captain Hank.
