We love what we do, but people are our specialty.



Cheerful and welcoming crew and staff. Knew exactly where to go for the best areas for manatees and awesome site to see for great memories and pictures. We will be going back for more great times.

The "A" team did a GREAT job with our manatee dive! This was the first snorkel experience for my two kids (age 7 & 8) and the crew at Explorida went out of their way to make our experience exceptional. They deserve their 5 star rating. Would recommend to all types of groups interested in seeing the manatee first hand.

Absolutely loved this tour, very informative and very professional. Was made to feel really comfortable with very good equipment. A very precious and unique experience to see the Manatees in their own environment. We were also shown three sisters springs which crystal clear waters which were brilliant for snorkelling. Highly recommended.



Outstanding!! Small tours feel private. No need to spend big bucks with the rest so called VIP tours. These guys treat everyone like a VIP. We saw a small group of Manatees and swam 3 sisters springs all before the crowds showed up. It's immediately clear they love what they do, and truly care about the animals and environment.
