Nature Coast Manatee Tours
Nature Coast Manatee Tours' Captain Jake, licensed by the US Coast Guard, makes sure guests on his private manatee tours feel right a home—an easy feat, given that they're on a houseboat. His 36-foot Nautaline houseboat has all the comforts of home, from satellite TV, running water, and electricity to a hearty continental breakfast complete with baked goods, cereal, and coffee. But the four-hour tour also treats guests to an outlandish activity: swimming with manatees. They don snorkels and wetsuits and plunge into the water alongside the gentle beasts.
