During three-hour guided manatee tours, six passengers board one of four available boats outfitted with all the necessary gear, including snorkels and manatee-to-English dictionaries. As captains navigate to the day's destination, knowledgeable guides lead the convoy into the cloudless waters of the Crystal River, where explorers don their underwater gear in hopes of seeing gentle, slow-moving manatees munching on vegetation and resting. Tours depart daily starting at 6:30 a.m. or 8 a.m.
