Manatee Swim

Are you ready to experience one of Florida’s most recognizable and majestic animals? This trip provides you with a rare opportunity to get up close and personal with the manatee in its natural habitat. We will drive down to the famous Crystal River and ride in a boat to a spot that is filled with manatees. After getting to a prime location, we will jump into the clear (and cold!) water and get an opportunity to swim with and pet these animals. Wetsuits and snorkels will be included in the price, just come with positive attitude and a love for wildlife!.
