Why Crystal River?
Crystal River’s location offers a safe refuge for Manatees year-round. There are three rivers around this area. The headsprings of these rivers maintain a 22 °C (72 °F) temperature all year. During November to March, about 400 Manatees congregate in the rivers around Citrus County.
Manatee Awareness Program… at NO EXTRA CHARGE. You’re here because you want an unforgettable manatee experience, and I am here to help you get this totally awesome experience, without putting stress on the animals. You will learn about Manatee Evolution, Manatee Habitat, Social Behavior, Regulations and Restrictions.
Our swim with manatee tours are a relaxing and educational experience. We specialize in small groups with the manatees. No experience is needed.
