It was an all-round successful and great day. We saw many wonderful animals and even spotted several alligators just ahead of us. In the end we were very lucky and the manatees were right in front of us. even for our 3 year old daughter it was an exciting experience with Astrid. She explained everything so well during the tour and told everything in both English & German. Astrid even conjured up a small lunch for us. Highly recommend this excursion!

We had the tour with Astrid and the whole experience was a real highlight and highly recommended. Nature in Florida is super exciting and Astrid took a lot of time to explain everything to us and to answer all of our questions. On the tour we saw tons of alligators, two manatees, a bald eagle and many other animals and plants. The atmosphere was super comfortable right from the start and it was a lot of fun. Clear recommendation!
