Citrus county has the highest concentration of manatees this year in recorded history, this is
the perfect opportunity to Swim With the Manatees. Hi my name is Captain Gene, Owner of Snorkel
with Manatees. Thanks for viewing our website. Our captains and I have been conducting Manatee Swim Tours in Crystal River/Homosassa River every day for over 16 years, we enjoy the manatees as much as you will. With many years
of experience we have learned that less is more. We have a business that focuses on less people at one time than many
people at once. All of our manatee tours are three to three and a half hours long and we try to keep you in
the water upwards to an hour and a half, although we or anybody else cannot guarantee how long your with the
manatees for they are free roaming, but we do our best. The manatee swim tours are conducted in a educational and instructional manor, to ensure the best encounter for the manatees and
your family. We are also permitted by the US Fish and Wildlife Service (permit # 09038) to
conduct the manatee tours in Crystal River and Homosassa River daily. We take the
time needed for our customers, the waters are shallow, the swims are easy and you will never be rushed. The tour times are
set for the best interactions and avoiding the crowds. On your
swim with the manatees tour, you will find the clear waters to be refreshing and breath taking. Scroll down the page to see your next adventure You
can make a Manatee Tour reservation by email or over the phone 352-257-TOUR and talk with one
of our Captains or Crew. Sign up now for seats are limited. Please call or email if you have questions or comments. Also
