$29 for a Guided Manatee Snorkel Tour ($59.50 Value)

Accompanied by trained instructors and guides, groups begin their three- to four-hour manatee tour with a boat ride on the Crystal River, where the captain seeks out the best manatee-spotting locales. Patrons can choose to stay on the boat or strap on a snorkel and mingle with the manatees, led by in-water guides all the while. The dive master takes video during the adventure to make a DVD available for purchase after the event. Tours run every day starting at 7 a.m. and 8:30 a.m., must call to reserve seating. Tour times will change mid-November; please call (352) 563-0041 for start times.

American Pro Diving Center

American Pro Diving Center helps visitors and locals explore the clear, teeming waters of Florida with year-round manatee tours and diving adventures. All-equipment-included manatee snorkel tours in Crystal River or winter expeditions to Homosassa River let snorkelers rub flippers with the rivers' large population of resident sea cows. In-water guides keep the experience safe and fun for both manatees and people, and snorkelers swim in between the gentle creatures, giving them a gentle pat or a canister of whisker wax.

For deeper subterranean adventures, the center offers classes that range from Discover Scuba Diving to full PADI open-water certification, in addition to specialty courses on rescue and wreck diving. Divers can plunge into one of seven diving excursions, including night dives in Rainbow River or mermaid line dancing in the lost city of Atlantis.

We happened upon a few manatees and were given ample time in the water to swim near and pet these amazing animals.
