About This Experience

When it comes to taking a manatee tour, there’s no place better than Crystal River Watersports in Crystal River, Florida. Get the chance to experience these gentle creatures in the only place where you can legally swim with manatees! Beyond the manatees, our incredible location on Florida’s Nature Coast provides the opportunity for a scenic nature cruise down the Indian River to the Crystal River. There is the opportunity to see a lot of wildlife including dolphins, river otters, bald eagles and many other birds. Once non-resting manatees are found, you enter the water to snorkel with them. Time permitting you may have the chance to also snorkel in one of our nearby beautiful springs – a beautiful natural area with crystal clear water.

We limit the number of guests to 10 per boat so that everyone has a semi-private experience with our knowledgeable Captains/Guides and with the manatees. We also provide all of your in-water gear (masks, snorkels, snorkeling vest and wetsuit).

  • Crystal River Watersports is a proud member of the Save the Manatee Club Guardian Guide Program, promoting responsible ecotourism.
  • There will be no more than 10 guests on the boat with the staff to ensure your semi-private experience. 
  • The three hour tour includes use of our masks, snorkels, wetsuits and snorkel vests.
  • Our trips include an in-water guide that will document your trip using our underwater camera. Photographs are available for purchase after the tour on a manatee shaped 4GB thumb drive so that you can bring your experience home with you!
  • What to bring: bathing suit, towel, dry clothes
