The best time to go is in winter. The spring is always 52°F, so the water is a little chilly. You can rent gear for $10, and the trip is only $35. Ask for Capitan Andy; he was great. We had 2 hours out there and were in the water with seven manatees coming and going. The kids enjoyed it, too; however, if they haven't snorkeled before, let them in the pool to try before going. Make sure to ask Captain Andy. It’s a little chilly but well worth it.
