The only thing better than seeing manatees in the wild is actually jumping in the water and swimming alongside them. This private half-day Crystal River manatee snorkeling and boat trip tour gives travelers plenty of opportunities to encounter these fascinating creatures above and below the water. Your personal guide will also be on hand to take photos and videos, supply drinks and snacks, and ensure everything goes smoothly.

Upon arrival at the dive shop, guests will be fitted for wetsuits and asked to watch a brief video from US Fish and Wildlife outlining their encounter with the manatees. The captain and guide will then take the group to the boat and embark all passengers and give a short safety brief. Once underway, the guide will further explain how to interact with the manatees once in the water and fit the guests with their masks and snorkels. While transiting to the swim areas, the captain and guide will present information about the area wildlife and what guests can expect to see during your tour. They will also answer questions and take pictures along the way. The guide will stay with the group the entire time, ensuring that the guests get the most out of their experience, all while taking photos and videos of your adventure!
