Fun time...DO NOT UBER - Nolan was a great tour guide that was very knowledgeable of the manatees and dolphins. We did not see any dolphins, but we did see a few manatees. My only gripe is that the location that we signed up for was changed the day of the activity and it was farther away. We had to use and uber and the new address did not have an actual address. Our uber driver had to use my friends phone to see the pinged address. When we needed to be picked up uber could not find us so Nolan had to take us to a gas station to have a physical address. DO NOT BOOK THIS EXCURSION UNLESS YOU HAVE A CAR, RIDE, OR A PATIENT UBER DRIVER. I give Nolan ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️, but the location hassle 👎🏾.

A great way to spend a few hours and see the local wildlife - It was a lot of fun! Nolan was really friendly and knowledgeable. We saw some manatees right away and got about 5' away. Also saw and learned about all of the birds that frequent the canal we were in. It was my first paddle boarding experience and I loved it.
