Q:

We are a group of 6 coming the first were of December. Should we book now? Also is the water deep I am not good swimmer and have my own life vest.

ethel w.  asked on  Sep 24, 2012

A:

Hi Ethel, The sooner you book the better as we fill up quickly. We provide pool noodles for you to float with during the swim, the water depths vary because of the tides.

Q:

I have a six-year-old who swims very well, and a four-year-old (turns five in October) that swims just ok. Can they both wear life vests and swim with the manatees or do you think they are too young? Thank you.

Irma N.  asked on  Sep 21, 2012

A:

Hi Irma, No they are not to young, I believe it is a great exieirence for all ages, they may wear life vest during the activity.

Q:

Just double checking - we will be in Orlando Dec 28 - Jan 1; Would we be able to use the Groupon one of these days? I know it said holidays excluded - not sure if the whole week between is considered holiday. Also, there are 4 people in my family, sounds like we can all four use a groupon the same day, right? Kids are 6 & 7 - sounds like a great experience. How far of a drive is this from Lake Buena Vista where our resort is?

Julie E.  asked on  Sep 21, 2012

A:

Hi Julie, Yes may use the groupon those days, you can all 4 use a groupon. We are located about 2 and 1/2 hours from Lake Buena VIsta.

Q:

I'm very upset that the Groupon photo shows someone touching a manatee (along with numerous other photos on your company website)? Manatees may approach and touch a swimmer should they choose to, but swimmers should NEVER do the same to a manatee. I hope this is something you educate your clients about and, more importantly, actually enforce. Though I worry that you didn't mention anything about not being able to touch them in the question above by Michelle D. Either way, why lure clients in by showing photos like these that promise activities which are not permitted?

Katie W.  asked on  Sep 21, 2012

A:

Hi Katie, While you are correct, swimmers are not allowed to touch manatees in the rest of the state, but however it is allowed here in King's Bay, this is the only place it is permitted. You are allowed to touch them using 1 hand, as the law states. If you have any further questions please give us a call at 1-866-466-2848 and I will be happy to answer them for you.

Q:

Can I buy a groupon for my 13 year old son to do this,if I accompany him on the boat,but I don't snorkel? How would I do this?Would I need a ticket for each of us to do this? -thanks

J M.  asked on  Sep 21, 2012

A:

Hi, Yes you may as long as you are on the boat with him. You will also need to purchase on for yourself to ride the boat.

Q:

Can my boys go? Theya are 9 and 11. (Is there a children's price?) Also, are manatee spottings guaranteed? Thanks you!

Trish C.  asked on  Sep 21, 2012

A:

Hi yes your boys may go , the price is the same for everyone. Manatee spottings and interaction is not gauranteed, they are wild animals in the natural environment.

Traci N.  from  Merchant  replied on  Sep 21, 2012

Q:

I was informed on a tour or at a theme park somewhere that interacting with manatees is illegal. Is this true? Would we be watching them only or getting to touch them too?

Michelle D.  asked on  Sep 21, 2012

A:

Citrus county is the only area in the state that you are allowed to swim with them. You will be in the water with them :)
