Snorkel with manatees

We bought a Groupon for this. I know you're can't control the weather but if it's warm - like 75-80 - the manatees go to cooler waters. That was our case. We were able to view a... read more

We bought a Groupon for this. I know you're can't control the weather but if it's warm - like 75-80 - the manatees go to cooler waters. That was our case. We were able to view a few but most had left for the day. That being said, the snorkeling was nice! And just cruising around the lake for 4... More

We took a 1 1/2 hour boat ride to snorkel with the Manatees. We were very lucky as there were only 2 other people on our tour so when we had enough of snorkelling we went for a tiki tour around the river. If you had to stay at the snorkel spot for the whole time it could be a... More

We spent three hours with Capt. Yves in Crystal River swimming with the manatees. It was a magical experience made all the better by Capt. Yves. He was knowledgeable, friendly and could not do enough to make our visit the best he could. I would strongly recommend this adventure. It's worth paying the little bit extra for a private tour....

Ok, this is not Disney World, this is swimming in the wild with wonderfully gentle Manatees. The tour was wonderful. I suggest the private (6 people) tour boat. We have already returned once since our original tour.
