Cool Experience

It was awesome to get in the water with the manatees. Going off season (now) you don't get to see too many but captain Joe was able to spot a ton of them. It's his 6th sense and... read more

Let me start out by clearing the air from reviews I've seen that were negative and why I think that was. First and foremost LISTEN to the rules of interaction with the Manatees. DONT be "one of those people" that think you can go into a wild habitat and do what you want. These are endangered animals, peaceful and gentle.... More

Bought a Groupon for snorkeling with the manatees and truly, would have paid full price for this! Such an amazing experience and Phil our tour guide was the best! He coached everyone though the entire experience, me as well! Will do this again when I come back to visit!

If its a slow season? Don't take our money! Over $500 plus 4 hours driving. They shouldnt take reservations if its not a good time. Didnt even offer a discount.

It was awesome to get in the water with the manatees. Going off season (now) you don't get to see too many but captain Joe was able to spot a ton of them. It's his 6th sense and he knows a ton about the area and manatees. The visibility wasn't that great because of the season and tides. We did... More

Booked a semi private outing to snorkel with manatees with Captain Joe. 3 out of 4 had never been snorkeling before. Captain was an excellent instructor with a great sense of humor. After the training session all of us were confident and ready to swim with the manatees. Captains respect and knowledge of the manatees in their element made the... More

On 3/19/16 we took our 2 Granddaughters on what should have been a fun Snorkeling with the Manatees Trip. I called in advance to ensure that the heavy rain was not a problem; I was told that we were "good to go". From the moment we set foot on the boat the "Captain" told us repeatedly that we couldn't have... More

My friend was visiting from NY & really wanted to see a manatee. The trip was nice. Upon booming my Groupon, the man did tell me this was towards the end of manatee viewing season (November-March). I opted for no wetsuit, water felt fine to me. The captain Jolly Roger was super nice and funny & informative. The boat started... More

Snorkeled with the Manatees in Crystal River. The Captain was outstanding and did a great job finding many spots to get in the water to observe the manatees up close and personal. Our first time snorkeling but we caught on quick. I would do this again in a heartbeat.

Friends had a groupon for "swimming with the Manatees" and asked my wife and I if we wanted to come along. At first we were somewhat apprehensive , but after some thought decided it would might be a fun adventure. Wow was it ever.
