Fun 2 Dive Manatee Tours Crystal River 18.4 km away
#1 of 58 Boat Tours & Water Sports in Crystal River
The other people who booked with us for the boat tour didn’t show up so it ended up being a private tour though!
If boat tours are banned soon, which is apparently quite likely as some operators are less than responsible, it will be a shame, but the home of the manatees is being invaded & mistreated - they need the protection.

We had a private boat tour, six people on one boat, with wet suits and masks and snorkels, a captain to drive the boat and act as a guide, and an in-water guide.
My family (2 adults and children ages 8 and 6) went on the semi-private boat tour with guide JJ and captain John S. It was amazing!

We were lucky to book a semiprivate manatee boat tour with Ed, which turned out to be a very skilled and experienced guide and is a coast guard officer and dive master as well.
Between the boat tours and snorkeling with the manatees, it was an exceptional weekend.

As 15-20 people descend in chaos from some of the other boat tours you'll be glad you chose GC expeditions instead!! Ron and his wife Charlene took 6 guests (the max number for any trip) including my wife, myself...

This one barely cost more than the shared, larger boat tours, and I'm so, so grateful we gave them a try! Thank you so much, Captain, for an absolutely incredible experience!
We did the private boat tour, which is a little more expensive, but you do end up with the best and when it comes to family, they do deserve the best.

My husband has to be on oxygen continually, now, and this group of individuals made everything so easy for him to board and enjoy the boat tour, which was even more amazing than last year!
We saw quite a few manatees but the boat tours kept interfering with our viewing so we had to move over constantly for them.
