River Ventures/Manatee Fun Tours provides you with a once in a lifetime experience without disrupting the manatees activities.
Captain Paul was able to get us into the best areas, where we were lucky enough to miss the crowds from other tours.

A HUGE thank you to Captain John and Captain Bob and everyone at Plantation Adventure Center and Manatee Tours and Plantation on Crystal River.
Planation provides 5 mm thick wetsuits (more warmth and flotation) and as we hung out mesmerized by all of the manatees, we noticed other tours come and go.

Their knowledge of the area and the manatees resulted in our group getting (respectfully) closer to manatees than other tours.
Captain Ron and Ricky run small group tours, other tour boats that came into the area had TONS of people on them.

Mike was a super knowledgable guide (he's been diving and giving aquatic tours for 20 years).
I went on a weekday in March with the SUP tour, which was nice since it was less crowded than the snorkel tours.

It was the busiest day of the busiest weekend of the year with at least 50 tours going out on the river plus tons of kayaks and paddle boats.
From making the reservation to the day of the tour every person we connected with was nice, polite, helpful , informative and took time with us to ensure from start to finish the day was memorable and a delight.

We did the manatee snorkel tour with Captain Jason and Meghan this weekend and it was incredible.
These guys are the best, we had the best experience away from the crowds the manatees interacted with us, judging from what we saw of the other tour boats we chose the best.

Other guided tours were already in the water so we scooted around for a bit to see if we found anything else however we did not.
The other tours used pool noodles to float, but this company use life jackets, which I thought was better.

Highly recommend asking for Irish Dave if you are doing any of the River Safari boat tours, swimming with the manatees, etc.
We took the 90 minute fan boat ride and had Captain Dave as our tour guide, we have done this ride several time as River Safari does a great job on their hour and hour and a half ride.

The best segway tours are those guided by someone passionate about their city, like Broderick is.
It was perfect and I recommend taking one of his tours to both newbies and seasoned riders of the Segway.
