They do try to upsell because you can’t take pictures. The package is $70 a person but for $10 more you can do another excursion lake swim with the sea lions. So, we got our manatees swim, we got to swim with the sea lions, we got the pictures from both, we got a buffet lunch, and we got a taxi ride home for 80 bucks extra per person Read Less

We swam with three manatees at the Chanakanab Park.
Sail Date: November 2016
We swam with three manatees at the Chanakanab Park. There were only two participants in our group and we had plenty time to swim with and feed the manatees! The manatees did a few tricks for us. We had a great time!

Was neat to get to touch and feed a manatee, but really it was just standing there as it swam back and forth. This came as part of a dolphin excursion, but would not be the most exciting stand-alone excursion.

The encounter was more about having photos taken. The swim after this, to watch the manatees underwater was fantastic. Beautiful graceful creatures, even had the chance to feed them.

This was a huge hit for us. It was a very neat experience to be able to swim with the Manatees! We got about an hour for this tour and I loved every second of it. We got to feed, pet, swim, hold, and kiss these kind creatures. The pictures were expensive but they did bargain with us so that was awesome. We had fun snorkeling before the time we could do our Manatee swim. Loved this!!!! Read Less

You get into the water on a long platform in an enclosure on the open ocean up to your chest and spend about an hour getting to touch and feed the manatees.' We had a lot of fun getting so close and feeding them. They gave us allot of romaine lettuce, fruits and veggies to feed. A photographer is out there the whole time to capture it on camera (your not allowed to bring your own camera). They take you to review your pictures before you get dry and they price it so the whole package is $133.50. A cd of all the shots and 2 large prints are included. Crazy amount of $ but we bought it. They threw in lunch, which was typical buffet but I would probably skip it if I were you, or maybe just have the nacho tips. Figure on a good 3 hours if you get the photo package eat and shower.
