Swim with Manatees on the Crystal
River, is known as "Kings Bay". The 8:00 am Manatee tour
is recommended all year. However we DO NOT recommend this tour, unless you like a theme park attraction, too many
people. We recommend the VIP Homosassa Tour.
From sunrise to about 2:00 pm is the best times to visit the manatees.
Later in the day the
manatees tend sleep and eat except when its really cold, then all day is great. The spring water is a 72 degrees all year
but we provide hot chocolate, coffee and hot cider after your Manatee Swim for the cooler months. Please
call or email for your reservation.
If you have your own equipment, bring it along. Call or e-mail

Citrus County Crystal River and Homosassa River has the highest concentration of resident and
migrating manatees in recorded history. This is the perfect opportunity to Swim With the Manatees. Hi my name
is Captain Gene, lead Captain of Snorkeling With The 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 fewer people at one time rather than
many people at once. All of our manatee tours are
three to three and a half hours long, except for our All Day Private Tours, 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 you're 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
there is no age restrictions, young or older can enjoy this amazing way of life. You will want to add this site to your
favorites, as you will enjoy our site almost as much as the Swim with Manatee tours.Thank you and see you soon from Captain Gene and crew.
We take an enormous pride in creating our Manatee Tours, and hope that you'll find something
on our website that interests you. We can also create custom tours; call or email and let us know what you want. We look
forward to doing business with you.
