We looked in the last minute for swimming / snorkeling tour with the Manatees and an airboat ride We were connected with Captain Hank in Crystal River through the Manateeconnection.com. We met Captain Hank early morning at the Manatee Connection dock and started a great and unforgettable tour while encountering many manatees. Captain Hank provided the full equipment including introduction video and behaviour guidance, snorkling mask, wet suit and the right locations to meet up with the manatees "in person". We did not realize how large a manatee is before bing next to one,,,
Thereafter we followed captain Hank truck to Inverness where we went on an airboat ride while seeing alligators, turtles and many birds. It was a memorable ride. We rode for 45 min to the stompknocker's restaurant on the river. we had a great ate lunch there (see my separate review of this fun restaurant).
If you are in the area and looking for a full or half day tours, ask for Captain Hank by name - highly recommended.
