In the yearly undersea family reunion, the manatee is the beloved great uncle, regaling wide-eyed dolphin calves with stories of his rowdy days as a professional pachinko player while munching on algae. Pay respects to everyone's favorite aquatic patriarch with today's Groupon: for $25, you get an underwater manatee encounter at Snorkel with Manatees in Homosassa (a $55 total value). The encounter includes the following:

  • Gear rental, including wetsuit, mask, and snorkel (a $20 value)
  • A three-hour swim, departing at 7:30 a.m. or 11 a.m. (a $35 value)

Snorkel with Manatees places land dwellers face-to-face with aquatic mammals in trips through their natural habitat. During the manatee snorkel excursion, adventurers garbed in the appropriate gear set out into shallow waters in search of underwater cattle and chicken of the sea. Snorkelers traverse the waterways for three hours beside an experienced captain, who ensures swimmers remain safe as they interact with the manatees. The creatures are famously hospitable toward human visitors, whom they almost always greet with curiosity and their favorite knock-knock jokes.
