Private 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.
Manatee tours are approximately 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!

Kind Words From Our Customers
We loved our afternoon with (Captains) Greg and Fred! We saw lots of manatees and they were very helpful and knowledgeable. This was our second trip with this company and we highly recommend them. They took us to places away from the crowds and got us lunch when we were hungry. Definitely enjoyed the tour!
Our family had a wonderful time swimming among these gentle giants. Captain Greg was great! We appreciated that it was just our family of 4 on a spacious pontoon boat, as opposed to other tour companies that were crammed w/ 10-12 people.
Cannot thank you enough for our tour today. Captain Fred Reed made a wonderful impression on our family. His respect for the manatees and other wildlife is inspiring. His love of the manatees and the water is obvious. My 12 year old daughter said she is glad that people like Captain Fred are there to protect the manatees. We will be back again for a winter trip.
