Join us to embark on one of the most memorable experiences of a lifetime.


3 Hours


Get up close and personal with the Florida manatee on this 3-hour swim tour in the federally protected waters of the Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge.

Hop aboard our US Coast Guard certified vessel where you will join your Master Captain to embark on your journey into the Kings Bay refuge waters. You will be paired with one of our expert in-water guides who will be with you every step of the way to assist in making your manatee encounter safe and memorable. Your in-water guide will also serve as your professional photographer to capture your memories on film, and those photos will be available for purchase upon arrival back to our facility. For this tour, all required gear is included at no additional charge.

Citrus County is revered as the manatee capital of the world, and swimming with manatees is a privilege that is uniquely ours. Don’t miss this chance to get up close and personal with Crystal River’s very own gentle giants and take home memories that will last forever. Book your tour today!!!

Please Note…

This is a wildlife tour. We are interacting with manatees in their natural habitat. While we do see manatees on every tour, we never use the word guarantee because Mother Nature reigns supreme. Conditions vary daily, tour by tour, and can never be predicted. Daily conditions vary seasonally with things like weather, tides, and crowds. You can always call us and ask us what conditions you can expect and will do our best to set your expectations. At the end of the day, we are dedicated to your experience and ensure we do our best to provide a safe, fun, and memorable trip!!
