Other considerations

Manatee swim tours are done daily, as Crystal River is host to the largest population of manatee in the United States. We are lucky to have a resident population of manatees year round, but because this is a wildlife encounter, conditions can be very different from day to day. We always recommend the earliest scheduled tour for the most ideal conditions. Please familiarize yourself with seasonal conditions before booking your tour. If you have any questions, feel free to call us anytime. Short notice or next day reservations may not be available to book online, so feel free to call for next day availability.
