Get up close to wild manatees in a protected natural park!

Departing from Crystal River, you board a small boat and put on your diving equipment (dive suit, mask and snorkel). You'll first enjoy a short cruise on the river to admire the magnificent natural scenery.

When you arrive in the wild manatee's habitat, you'll slip into the water to swim in their company! Slowly and in silence, they will come up to you to get to know you better... with their impressive size and their gentle and peaceful character, these creatures are very endearing. You will have approximately 90 minutes to touch, pet and play with the manatees.

You'll then make the calm journey back to the bank with plenty of amazing memories!
