Average citizens rarely get to interact with manatees as most have already fully matured into mermaids. Hang out with majestic mermaid larvae with today’s deal to Manatee Tour and Dive. Choose between the following options, both of which include rental gear (mask, snorkel, fins, and wetsuit):
- For $24, you get an adult admission and gear rental (a $49 value).
- For $12, you get a child (age 6–12) admission and gear rental (a $24.50 value).
Manatee Tour and Dive's Coast Guard–certified captains lead the two- to three-hour journeys into waters ripe with manatees every day of the week at 6:30 a.m., 10:00 a.m., and 1:00 p.m., except for Tuesdays and Fridays, when tours run at 6:30 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. Snorklers can enjoy the warm waters of Crystal River while swimming alongside the graceful, gentle giants in their natural habitat, while getting a glimpse at a number of other elegant and endangered species including ospreys, tarpon, and the occasional bald eagle. Aqua-tots younger than the age of 5 can participate in tours for free with a paid adult, and reservations must be made 24 hours in advance.
