Did this adventure with their competition previously. Pros/Cons on both. Other place offered optional purchase of DVD recording of your encounter, MTaD didn't. Other place had changing room on boat. Snorkels at MTaD kept filling with water, making us constantly have to surface to clear (felt like drowning!), which interrupted the serenity of the experience. MTaD DID have short wetsuits - a huge plus. MTaD's captain/owner was not too friendly at first (seemed annoyed to be bothered) but warmed up later. If we had to pay full price, we'd go back to competitor. Groupon definitely won our business at MTaD.

Wonderful experience. Friendly staff and captain. Very knowledgable Captain. He pointed us in the best location for an opportunity with the manatees. He didnt rush us and even stayed out a little longer than we were supposed to. My family and I will definitely be coming back again....

It was a worthwhile trip. Though it was a cold day and the manatees were few to see, we were impressed by the captain's efforts. We did see manatees, but not close enough to touch them. I believe we'll go back again.

What You'll Get

The call of the wild is like a call from an elderly grandparent: though you can’t quite make out what’s being said, you feel better about yourself when you answer. Pick up nature's phone with today's Groupon from Manatee Tour and Dive in Crystal River. Choose between the following options:

  • For $10, you get a manatee dive and tour for a child 12 or younger (a $24.50 total value). Children 5 or younger are free with a paid adult. The dive includes the following:
    • A guided manatee tour (a $14.50 value)
    • Snorkel-equipment rental (a $10 value)

  • For $20, you get a manatee dive and tour for an adult (a $49 total value). The dive includes the following:
    • A guided manatee tour (a $29 value)
    • Snorkel-equipment rental (a $20 value)

Peak season typically lasts from October 1 to March 31.

Manatee Tour and Dive sets visitors swimming among West Indian manatees within the Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge, dotted with natural springs and underground saunas that keep the water at a temperature of around 72 degrees Fahrenheit. Guided manatee tours depart several times a day for 2.5 hours at a stretch and grant guests the opportunity to observe the majestic yet gentle mammals within an environment designed to preserve and protect their population. Before the dive, guests don wetsuits, masks, snorkels, fins, and echolocation helmets. Then, guides armed with plenty of safety experience and knowledge of the natural world lead swimmers of all ability levels through manatee-rich waters as the huge creatures drift along, interact, and convene consciousness-raising groups to eliminate the hurtful term "sea cow."
