Like spying on dogs as they play poker, a boat tour provides a great opportunity to see animals in their natural habitat. Experience life unfiltered with today's Groupon: for $32, you get a Crystal River tour for one person from Florida Manatee Tours & Crystal River Watersports (a $68.90 value).
The tour guides at Florida Manatee Tours & Crystal River Watersports ferry sightseers down the scenic Indian River waterways toward Kings Bay. On a two-and-a-half-hour boat tour, seafarers gaze along the shore at elegant waterfront homes, keeping peepers peeled for white-tailed deer, otters, and indigenous motorboats. Travelers soon arrive at the coast of the Crystal River Indian Archeological State Park, land that Native Americans first settled more than 10,000 years ago. Scenic wildlife-management-refuge areas brim with photo-worthy wildlife, keeping camera-wielders on their guard to snap shots of wild pigs, manatees, and aquatic yetis. Tours depart twice daily from the docks behind the Days Inn Resort.
