Get ready for an aquatic adventure as you head into the clear blue waters of Crystal River and swim among the groups of manatees that call these Floridian waters their home. Your expert guide will provide you with all of the necessary equipment and instruction before you take a quick boat ride to areas where manatee congregate. These endangered sea creatures are extremely gentle, and also quite curious, so be ready as they often come up to visitors for belly rubs and tickles. After lunch, make your way to Homosassa State Park for even more manatee viewing and see many other wild animals as well. A full day of fun awaits!
