The staff was nice, but we saw a fin of a dolphin and a blip of a manatee. I am sure it was just a bad day, but I would have rather stayed on the ship and had no lines.

An interesting couple of hours sailing quietly in search of wildlife. Didn't see a lot though. Nevertheless, the tour guides were excellent and very knowledgeable but on the whole, the excursion was vastly overpriced.

Our tour guide was very knowledgeable. It was my first time to Florida in my adult life and I felt like I learned something. If you are a family that really likes to take time out to learn something then this is an inexpensive excursion to take. The tour guide educated us about manatees and the other various wildlife that make Banana River their home. You will also learn some important facts about Port Canaveral, Cocoa Beach and the surround area! Read Less
