We are looking forward to returning to the water on Monday – January 4, 2021 for a 9:00 a.m. Manatee Tour!

With 2020 rapidly coming to a close, we are eager to get back on the water to share fantastic opportunities to learn more about the Florida Manatee!  It has been a difficult time for everyone and as you know, we stopped running tours in March, 2020 and just recently took the River Queen out for the 4th annual Christmas Boat Parade sponsored by Sweetwater Landing Marina.  We are planning to limit the boat capacity to 20 passengers and 2 crew at this time, allowing adequate space for social distancing.  (The vessel is permitted to carry 42 passengers and 2 crew)

On chilly mornings, we have blankets available to borrow and after every trip, they will be washed/sanitized prior to returning to the boat, all surfaces will be wiped down.  Of course, you are welcomed to wear your mask and gloves if it makes you feel more comfortable.  Bring your camera!!

Thank you so much for supporting our small business who is eager to reopen our doors for your relaxation, education and fun opportunity to see Manatee’s!!

Kathy & Captain John Cookman
