Description

Immerse yourself in the spring-fed waters of King’s Bay Wildlife Refuge to swim and snorkel alongside fascinating manatees. Join a certified Coast Guard guide for an informative lesson about these marine mammals, then hop aboard a pontoon boat and head out to the estuary to swim with the manatees.

Your adventure begins by meeting your guide at the River Ventures office in Crystal River. Take a seat in a comfortable classroom-like setting to learn about the area’s eco-system and the marvelous manatee. Get fitted for your gear and then make your way to the dock, where you board the pontoon boat and head out on the water.

As you cruise out into the estuary, keep your eyes peeled for birds above and fish below as you approach a spot where manatees can be found. With the assistance of your guide, submerge yourself in the water, snorkeling alongside these captivating creatures. Watch as they swim past you, gliding underwater as they watch you approach with the utmost curiosity. Your guide snaps photos of you and the manatees throughout your interaction, ensuring you have memories to last a lifetime. After your underwater excursion, climb back onto the boat and return to shore.
