Manatee Tours
Crystal River and Homosassa Springs are home to one of the largest populations of manatees in Florida. Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge was established to protect the endangered West Indian Manatee. Many kinds of Crystal River manatee tours are available from kayak tours to diving tours.

Snorkeling
Snorkeling or “swimming” with the manatees is the most popular kind of Crystal River manatee tour. Most manatee tours in the Crystal River and Homosassa area will offer snorkeling near manatees but state regulations for close human interaction with manatees must be followed.

Diving
Manatee Dives are the ultimate Florida manatee experience. As with swimming or snorkeling with the manatees, state regulations for close human interaction with manatees must be followed. Manatee dives are offered by specialized dive boats as well as smaller private boat charters.

Kayaking
Kayak manatee tours are very popular in the Crystal River and Homosassa areas. Kayak tour guides emphasis that kayaking is less intrusive on the manatees and their environment and many manatee kayak tours do not include snorkeling or swimming with the manatees.

Stand Up Paddleboards
Stand up paddleboards or “SUPs’ are everywhere in Florida and many manatee lovers claim that SUPs are the best way to see manatees with minimum impact to their environment and on the manatees themselves. SUPs allow you to get very close to manatees in shallow waters.

Many Manatee Tour Guides Also Offer:

Fishing Charters
Charter fishing boat captains know where to find the manatees and many fishing boats also offer manatee tours, especially during the height of manatee tour season from November through March. These fishing charter boats are great for small private charters and usually include snorkeling.

Scalloping
Many manatee tour guides also offer snorkeling for tasty Florida scallops from July trough September during scalloping season along Florida’s “Nature Coast”. Some of the best scalloping in the state is found in the Crystal River and Homosassa area.
