Full description
The gentle manatees of the Crystal River await your arrival on this delightful day-long tour where you can swim with these curious creatures.

Your day will begin with complimentary pick-up from one of the key meeting points in Orlando, Kissimmee, Lake Buena Vista and Disney. You will enjoy a bagged breakfast and will be whisked away to the picturesque Crystal River.

Crystal River is home to the curious and endangered manatee. Also known as Sea Cows, these creatures are most definitely the gentle giants of the marine world. Here you have the chance to snorkel or swim in the clear blue waters. Manatees are curious creatures and will often come to greet those who choose to snorkel or swim. They may even roll over to be tickled!

Those who prefer to stay above water may wish to simply sit back, relax and enjoy the natural surroundings.

After lunch you will visit the beautiful Homosassa State Park, one of Florida’s best kept secrets. At the state park you will have the chance to see many of Florida’s endangered species, such as the state panther. You will also have the chance to watch the manatees again from an underwater viewing chamber.

Fun, relaxed and light-hearted, this day-long tour and swim with the manatees is the perfect tour choice for the whole family!
