Do you want to swim with manatees or take a manatee tour? Maybe you just want to take pictures of Manatees. You can choose from several different Manatee Tours in Crystal River. Welcome to the world of Crystal River Manatee Tour & Dive! We have the package for you to choose from to make your West Indian Manatee tour a unique, exciting, and memorable one! Our Captains are well experienced and knowledgeable in the Manatee’s activities and how they interact with humans. An experience with the West Indian Manatee is an experience that you will always remember! Since manatees prefer the absence of scuba bubbles, snorkeling is the way for “kids” of all ages to have a wonderful experience. Underwater video of your experience is also available by reservation and produced on DVD.



If swimming or snorkeling is your favorite way to enjoy the 72 degree flowing springs, Crystal River Manatee Tour & Dive also offers a variety of trips for the beginner to the most seasoned swimmer. And, we can help you arrange Rainbow River tours, deep sea, inshore, and bay fishing trips or experience an airboat ride.

Crystal River Manatee Tour & Dive is here for your enjoyment!

If you want to do it yourself, we rent kayaks, and canoes.

Come swim with the West Indian Manatee at Crystal River Manatee Tour & Dive! Our captains’ knowledge, experience and enthusiasm is so infectious that our clients return several times each year and year after year, bringing other family members and friends to meet the endangered West Indian Manatee!

Crystal River Manatee Tour & Dive is looking forward to hearing from you. We await your visit for the “Experience Of A Lifetime”!
