Our Guide to Florida Adventure Tour – Swim with Manatees

The Manatee, or 'Sea Cow', is one of the gentle giants of the sea and to swim with these delightful, slow-swimming creatures is a once-in-a-lifetime experience!

Discover a different side to Florida as you head to the Crystal River where you will meet your expert Manatee guide for a leisurely narrated boat ride through the heart of Manatee country before dropping anchor and climbing into the water with these amazing creatures. Mask, snorkel, and fins are included, but wet suits are not included. (they are available for hire if required).

Following your quality time with the Manatees of the Crystal River, head to Homosassa State Park, renowned for its rare and endangered species including Manatees, bears, panthers, alligators and even a hippo. Enjoy Lunch while you explore the Wildlife Park before ending the day with a thrilling airboat ride on the Withlacoochee River.

It’s a perfect day out for the entire family and a great way to see what the real Florida is really all about! 

The tour lasts around 12 hours in total and transfer time to the Crystal River is around 2 hours. The tour picks up from various central locations in Orlando between 7.30am and 8.25am. You will need to make your way to the nearest pick-up point which will be detailed on your ticket voucher. The service is designed to save you sitting on a coach that picks up from every hotel in Orlando.

The manatees in Crystal River are wild animals and, as such, we are unable to guarantee interaction. However, the expert Coast Guard-certified boat captains will do everything they can to make this happen. Due to the water temperature and abundance of food, there is a population of around 80 Manatees that live in the Crystal River year round. Numbers increase over the winter to around 300. The peak viewing season is October to March. The Crystal River is the only location in the entire USA that you are LEGALLY allowed to have interaction with manatees in the wild.
