Swimming with the Manatees in Florida
Swimming with the manatees is certain to be one of the coolest things you’ll ever do. Enjoy a snorkeling experience in with Manatee Tours & Dives.
Crystal River, Florida, is about an hour and a half north of Tampa. The town and its surrounding waters have natural springs that keep the water at a warm 72 degrees year round. The Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge is one of the few places that West Indian Manatees are drawn to every year during the winter. Manatees can’t survive in colder waters and the water is never cold in Crystal River. Hundreds of manatas flock to the springs and rivers in this area, joining the manatees who live there year round.
Manatees are gentle and friendly and can be playful. Manatees Tours & Dives’ captains are experienced and knowledgeable about manatees’ activities. Manatees don’t like the bubbles from scuba equipment. Snorkeling is the way for the young and the young at heart to swim with the dolphins.
If you’re lucky, you’ll see a baby manatee. They are precious. The adult manatees will be very nonchalant around you and neither of you will feel threatened. Swimming with manatees is an adventure you’ll remember forever!
So many Manatee Tours & Dives’ customers come back year after year after year they now offer a special rate for return customers. Come see for yourself why people keep coming back to swim with the manatees.
A snorkel mask and flippers will be provided. A video of your underwater experience can be purchased with an advanced reservation.
Crystal River is 19 miles from Inverness, 21 miles from Dunnellon, 39 miles from Ocala and 86 miles from Orlando.
