Overall a great experience. Tom was knowledgeable and taught us about manatee. Also appreciate he took us to an area without any other boats so we had manatee to ourselves. Just wish there were less people in our group. Still felt like to many people in the water. I recommend renting the wetsuit as the water is colder than expected.Lunch was great! Definitely won’t leave hungry. The visit to the park was interesting.

Itinerary

First it’s off to the picturesque Crystal River, home of the endangered manatee. Here you can choose to snorkel and swim in the crystal clear water, or just sit back, relax, and enjoy the natural surroundings on the boat tour. Manatees, also known sea cows, are gentle giants and when snorkeling in the river where they often swim, they sometimes come to greet you or even roll over to be tickled. You cannot approach wild manatees, they are wild on the river but if we spot them manatees often will come near to humans. Wild manatee sightings are not guarenteed.

After lunch, visit the fantastic Homosassa State Park - one of Florida’s best kept secrets. At the state park, you will have the chance to view many of Florida’s endangered animals such as the state panther and also visit an underwater viewing chamber for the manatees. Breakfast and lunch are included in this all-inclusive day trip – it’s perfect for the whole family!
