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.

Tour Information

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!
