Additional Information

  • Once in a lifetime opportunity to interact with an ENDANGERED species. Citrus County FL, where the Crystal River is located, is the ONLY location in the entire USA that you are LEGALLY allowed to have interaction with manatees in the wild.
  • Wetsuits are available for rent locally ($10.00) and act as an excellent buoyancy aid.
  • Clients are encouraged to wear their swimming outfit underneath their morning clothes to aid in quick departure out on to the Crystal River.
  • Crystal River is lucky to have a group of approximately 80 manatees that stay all year round. During the colder months, an additional 300 more join them! The constant 72-degree (F) temperature of the spring-fed river and abundance of underwater plant life make it the perfect habitat for the manatees.
  • The manatees in Crystal River are wild animals and, as such, we are unable to guarantee interaction. However, our expert Coast Guard-certified boat captains will do everything they can to make this happen.
