Manatee Tours in Crystal River, FL

Join us for a nature cruise to a place where the manatees play. Swim with manatees for a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Tour Information

Manatee tours are 3½-4 hours long. We will embark on a nature cruise, to Kings Bay in Crystal River, where you’ll swim with manatees in the wild. When we arrive, you are encouraged to float in the water for an up-close experience with the manatees. If you prefer not to swim with manatees, you can remain on board and view the manatees from our tour boat. Manatees are docile creatures, gentle mammals actually. They do not pose any danger. Swimming with manatees is enjoyed by all, whether you’re two or ninety-two!

Today was another beautiful day with cooler temperatures, more manatees and lots of sunshine. The water has been fairly clear of late and the manatees were generally active today. We are now in the height of the season. This is truly the best time of year to swim with manatees.
