Introducing the Crystal River Manatee Swim & Snorkel Tour. Our boat is covered and warm. Tours conducted year around.
The most comfortable tour boat in the area. Manatee education video shown onboard. Oversized restroom.
The Ms. Crystal River offeres a spacious interior with plenty of elbow room.
Due to the time it takes to fit and don your wetsuits, we ask that you please arrive 30 minutes prior to scheduled departure time.
$40 includes all necessary gear
"This rate is not for groups that want a private manatee viewing tour. Ask Captain Mike for private group rates."
Our boat is Coast Guard approved for up to 25 passengers with only 15 reserved seats for swimming with manatees and 10 reserved seats for viewing manatees.
How We Help The Manatee
We have donated over $30,000 to the "Friends of Chazzowitzka.
We employ a Marine Biologist who serves not only as a boat captain and guide, but also to educate our guests about this wonderfully gentle giant, the manatee.
We conduct our tours not only to provide the unique experience of meeting a manatee up close and personal, but also to teach about the lives of the manatees, their habits, their likes and dislikes, migration and so much more.
We teach our guests that this is not an amusement park, that the manatees need to be treated with respect during the encounter.
Over the years my company has developed a reputation for customer care, cleanliness, friendliness, trust, timeliness, and dedication unmatched by any of the others in the manatee snorkel tour business.
Typically our early morning manatee tours are the better encounters. This boat will be the first in the Kings Springs area of the Crystal River before other tour operators and the general public arrive. Manatees are more active early in the morning.
Thanks Captain Mike!! We had a wonderful time floating with the manatees! We
were lucky enough to have great, personal experiences with them while still
maintaining respect for them. You guys were awesome pointing them out, but
still giving them their space. Too many people don't put the animals first,
a BIG thank you for that!! Next time we visit Florida we will be coming to
you & floating again!! THANK YOU!!!!!
P.S. the recommended lunch at Crackers was excellent! :)
