SWIM AND SNORKEL WITH MANATEES

LIVE WITH A MANATEE FOR A FEW HOURS

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 Master Captain - Parker, lead Captain of Snorkeling With The Manatees. Thanks for viewing our website. Our captains and I have been conducting Manatee Snorkel and Swim Tours in the Crystal River Refuge and Homosassa River  Florida every day for over 19 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 "Swim with Manatee 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 352-257-8687  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.
