SMALL GROUP MANATEE TOUR

Outstanding experience! Beautiful, beautiful creatures! We knew that seeing even one manatee in June is not a guarantee - we were blessed to spend 90 min in the water with 10+ first thing in the morning. The staff was professional and mindful of respecting the manatees and the environment. Some of the other tours that were in the water nearby had 10-15 guests and it seemed a bit chaotic trying to give that many people the opportunity to share what we did. This small group booking is the way to go!

Lauren was our guide and Mike our captain. We had a great time. They knew where to look and we’re able to find a chill manatee that didn’t mind us hovering around for a long while. It was really fascinating to watch him eat, swim and come up for air. And Lauren got some nice photos. We also visited the springs and the kids enjoyed how clear the water was diving down to see the rocks and fish.

Captain Ron and Lauren were great. They found the perfect spot with clear water and the manatees just swam around us. This was a last minute decision to book this and I’m so glad we did. Will definitely be back again

We chose to do the small group trip at 6:30am. We ended up being the only ones that morning and it was great. As soon as we got in Crystal River the guides spotted a momma and baby manatee. My wife and I were able to swim for hours with the manatees, and even swam with them in Three Sister Springs
