What You'll Get
- $30 for a guided manatee snorkel and tour for an adult ($49 value)
- Guided manatee tour ($29 value)
- Snorkel-equipment rental ($20 value)
Guided manatee tours depart several times a day for 2 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 snorkel, guests don wetsuits, masks, snorkels, and echolocation helmets. Then guides armed with plenty of safety experience and knowledge of the natural world lead swimmers of all ability levels as the huge creatures drift along, interact, and convene consciousness-raising groups to eliminate the hurtful term sea cow.
About 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.
