Choose Between Two Options

$10 for a manatee dive and tour for a child aged 12 or younger (a $24.50 value). Children aged 3 and younger are free with a paid adult.

  • Guided manatee tour (a $14.50 value)
  • Snorkel-equipment rental (a $10 value)

$20 for a manatee dive and tour for an adult (a $49 value)

  • Guided manatee tour (a $29 value)
  • Snorkel-equipment rental (a $20 value)

Guided manatee tours depart several times a day for 2.5 hours and grant guests the opportunity to observe the majestic yet gentle mammals within an environment designed to preserve and protect their population. Before the dive, guests don wetsuits, masks, snorkels, fins, and echolocation helmets. Then guides armed with plenty of safety experience and knowledge of the natural world lead swimmers of all ability levels through manatee-rich waters as the huge creatures drift along, interact, and convene consciousness-raising groups to eliminate the hurtful term sea cow.

Manatee Tour and Dive

Manatee Tour and Dive curates expeditions to see west indian manatees within the Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge, which is dotted with natural springs that keep the water at a temperature of around 72 degrees. Guided manatee tours offer the opportunity to snorkel with the gentle giants, whereas kayak rentals encourage self-exploration of the crystal-clear waters and inner spirit manatees. Licensed captains lead groups on scalloping expeditions, during which groups travel to scallop-abundant areas to splash in the water and gather live bay scallops to take home.

Reviews

The Manatee's themselves are amazing - such cool, gentle animals!

Acebab, TripAdvisor, 3/7/13

the tour guide was great in finding spots to swim with manatees, watching them play and listening to them munching on sea grasses!
