Owner description: Swim alongside the gentle giants with daily tours going out every morning. $65 per person includes all equipment, 5mm wet suits, mask, snorkel, towel service, hot chocolate, coffee, hot showers, and heated changing facility with no parking fees! Ask about our private tours as well. Crystal River offers the best location to see and interact with the Florida manatee, a subspecies of the West Indian manatee, also known as gentle giants. Unlike other areas of Florida, the Federal Government allows for "passive observation" in the water between manatees and people in Kings Bay. This allows face-to-face interaction with manatees. We provide pre-tour education on passive observation and how to get the best experience during the tour.

We visited the crystal river to swim/snorkel with the manatees. Captains lance and Ed did a fantastic job locating a few manatees. April is not the ideal time to see the most manatees but we were fortunate to see a few up close and personal. We also snorkeled in the three sisters spring. Beautiful. The captains made it a fantastic experience

Thank 48barb2015

Lance and Memphis made our manatee tour AMAZING! They were both so informative, patient and helpful( with our young children and grandma)! We were fortunate to see many manatees.. it was such a cool experience. Our children stated it was the best day of their life:)
Couldn't have asked for better tour guides!

Thank kerrysyn
