Great tour guide, very informative. Very beautiful tour. We'll be doing it again. We didn't catch a manatee but we did an afternoon tour. We saw a ton of dolphins.

Sean, our captain and Diane, our guide were both very friendly, knowledgeable and entertaining. They also shared some insider knowledge of the local environment. We did get to see dolphins that were feeding and swimming around our boat. We all saw a variety of waterfowl that would demonstrating their aerial fishing skills. The boat was comfortable and the scenery was enjoyable. It was 2 hours well spent.

We were a party of four who had planned to parasail in Cocoa as we were on a one day layover at Cape Canaveral.Because the waves were not suitable for parasailing, our next option was to do the nature cruise on the Banana River.Well, absolutely no regrets. Shawn was our Captain and Diane was our Guide.The boat was neat, clean and well stocked with new life jackets. The trip left exactly on time and lasted about two hours.We cruised slowly up the Banana River. Diane is a very knowledgeable and experienced Guide.We saw dolphins early into the trip, several at a time, feeding at the sea walls. Then later, we saw another which was probably a male, feeding.We also saw ospreys, fish eagles, cormorants and white ibises. There were also herons and pelicans. Shawn positioned and backed up the boat when there was wildlife to see and photograph.Unfortunately, because of the recent rain and the water composition, we did not see any manatees which may have gone into the many lagoons and inlets surrounded by mangrove.All in all, Shawn and Diane were very courteous and pre-disposed to their customers. Diane took pictures for the customers.We will always return to this trip and we recommend it to anyone who may be looking for a great experience in Cocoa. We would also consider any other tour(s) they operate.One last thing, if you want to see “real” real estate, take this tour. It is a value-added benefit of the tour. No extra cost.
