Snorkel with Manatees - Crystal River: $25 for a Underwater Manatee Encounter from Snorkel with Manatees in Crystal River ($55 Value)

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 from Snorkel with Manatees in Crystal River (a $55 total value). The encounter includes:

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

Snorkel With Manatees places land dwellers face to face with aquatic mammals in trips through their natural Crystal River habitat. During the manatee snorkel excursion, adventurers garbed in the appropriate gear set out from the Aquamarina Twin Rivers docks 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 joke. During the summer months, approximately 70 manatees frolic with human chums, and winter aquatic attendance can reach up to 400.

Snorkel with Manatees

Snorkel with Manatees' expert divers lead tours on underwater sojourns to discover peaceful manatees and environs beneath the waves. Offering both group and mini manatee tours year-round, the guides monitor each diver to ensure safe practice with the animals.

They also teach the fundamentals of their craft during discover scuba-diving lessons.
