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.

“Bring a snack and water! This place is very respectable and aware to the space of manatees. Our guide almost confronted another person breaking rules if they did not leave before we got there. Not everyone should be able to tour but this place was amazing. We went in private areas to not crowd areas and it was a more private expierence. There were still manatees all over and the tour was amazing. I hear tours may stop due to the concern of tourism and harm to manatees. If there was a company to tour I'd pick this one you can't go wrong!!!! ”
