$29 for a Manatee Snorkeling Tour ($60 Value)

  • Tour (a $40 value)
  • Wetsuit (a $10 value)
  • Snorkeling gear (a $10 value)

The three-hour manatee tours depart at 8 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. daily. Patrons make sure that their included wetsuits and snorkels fit properly before watching a US Fish and Wildlife Service video about interacting with manatees. Guides lead the groups to pontoon boats to start the tour. On the ride, patrons may spot bald eagles, dolphins, otters, and other wildlife. Finally, the boat stops near manatees, before passengers jump in the water. The mammoth, slate-gray creatures may approach guests to be gently petted.

Native Vacations

The Native Vacations crew constantly views their surroundings with the eyes of explorers. They see opportunity on any terrain, and they search for adventure while aiming to preserve the landscape. On land, the crew coordinates horseback-riding tours that wind through the Withlacoochee Forest. As hooves beat a lazy drumroll in the dappled sunlight, riders watch deer and sherman fox pups as they dart between trees. In the waterways, Native Vacations leads kayaking tours, airboat rides, and snorkeling adventures. Kayak paddles leisurely stir waters populated by dolphins while bald eagles slip through the warm air, and airboats tear across the surface of the Crystal River with the metallic purring of RoboCop drinking warm milk. In the waters of King's Bay, guides teach snorkelers the basics of breathing underwater and allow them to pet any of the elephant-gray mammoths that approach.
