Swim with Wild Manatees in the Crystal River!

Florida's beautiful Crystal River is the only place in the USA where you are legally allowed to interact with manatees. So grab your swimsuit and get ready to snorkel with these endangered gentle giants!

The experience is led by professional diving instructors and all snorkelling equipment is included, so you’re in safe hands whether you’re an experienced swimmer or a newbie

Get up-close with a manatee 

Even though they are under a serious risk of extinction, manatees (also known as sea cows) have no natural fear of humans and they are quite used to having visitors around.

Don’t be surprised if one of the curious grey giants swims right up to you!

The water temperature of the river is around 22°C – perfect for both humans and manatees.
