There’s only one place in North America where you can swim with manatees – Crystal River, Florida.
Manatees, also known as sea cows, are endangered and protected creatures, weighing more than 1000 pounds. These gentle giants eat only aquatic plants and are not harmful to humans. When the waters in the Gulf of Mexico cool off – November through April – manatees migrate to Crystal River where the water temperature remains at 72ᵒ year round.
Meet these curious, docile animals by remaining perfectly still and letting them come to you.
There’s more to your dive than the manatees. In fact, Crystal River offers some of the best snorkeling in Florida. Divers can experience dozens of freshwater springs that boil from the underground aquifer. The salty mix of Gulf waters create a marine environment that is nothing short of spectacular. You are just as likely to find tarpon, snapper and redfish as you are to see largemouth bass and garfish.
