Your day will begin with complimentary pickup from one of the key meeting points in Orlando, Kissimmee, Lake Buena Vista and Disney. You will then 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 bes...
The Chinese buffet left a lot to be desired. The van driver was very informative & helpful. Mike our guide at the river was so kind and understanding. He made the swim with the manatees a special experience. The park was very informative and made for a nice afternoon.

The trip was great. Unfortunately, we had to wait 30 minutes for the driver in the morning and already had the fear that we would not be picked up (we were unable to reach anyone under the given mobile number). For breakfast there is an orange juice directly from the region and 2 sweet snacks. So rather sparse. The driver himself was able to tell a lot about the region and the history of Orlando. So if you still want to have one or the other secret tip is right with him. Arrived at the Crystal River a short film and a few simple rules for dealing with the animals are shown. WATER IS VERY COLD. So take the chance and get yourself a neoprene suit. Blue lips had many. Even before we could see the first Manati we were taken the illusion that we can fall on a variety of animals .. Unfortunately, one meets only isolated animals. Nevertheless a madness experience. It was fun and the food afterwards was really good. Have lots of fun with it
Friendly and courteous driver (Donald) and boat crew (Tom and Carlos) . Really enjoyed the lunch at the diner with great good and really nice waitress. Loved the convenience of having transportation included in the package. Would definitely recommend to friends and family.
Donald was an excellent tour guide! Breakfast and lunch were great. Swimming with the manatees was amazing and we were very well guided!
An unforgettable day, it is better to spend money and time on this tour, instead of all these Disneyland and other parks!
Just great .... the breakfast was very easy as you know it in the US but otherwise a great trip
