Are we guaranteed to see dolphins or manatees?

Our marine mammals are wild and sightings are always random therefore there are no guarantees. We estimate that dolphins are spotted on 80-90% of trips and manatees are seen on 20-30% of trips. Please keep in mind that while dolphins are full time residents of the area, manatees are migratory and leave our waters from approximately December – April.
