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 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.

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.
