We offer daily trips to swim and snorkel with the manatees in the beautiful Crystal River. Kayak and Paddle board rentals are also available. All gear is included in tour pricing, and all tours are semi private with 6-10 guests maximum per boat. This is a great adventure that is suitable for the whole family. Children 3 years old and up are welcome as long as they are comfortable in the water and are able to float quietly. Our tours are all-inclusive, no hidden fees, or additional charges for snorkeling gear rental, parking, etc. It's all included!. Picture packages are available on every tour. Thanks for looking!

Captain Dallas and Alex did a great job seeing that all in our group of all ages had a personal experience swimming with the manatee. Every body wants to go back and do it again.
