Florida Manatee Snorkel & Swim Adventure Tour Photos (16)

The Florida adventure tour is an interactive and interesting way to connect with the natural attractions in this beautiful state while making great memories with the entire family. This tour is special in that it allows guests to get up close and personal with the beautiful animals known as manatees! It also includes round trip transportation, breakfast, lunch, an airboat ride, and Homosassa State Wildlife Park. The entire experience lasts approximately twelve hours.

From Orlando, FL, it takes approximately an hour and 45 minutes to reach Crystal River, FL. The bus is comfortable, air-conditioned, and provides beautiful views along the way. With roundtrip transportation, you don't have to worry about navigating the Orlando highways and can instead enjoy the scenery. You'll have a provided breakfast on the trip as well to fuel your adventures. After the ride, it's time to start your day of fun! 

Crystal River Swimming with Manatees Experience


The Crystal River in Citrus County, Florida, where you will be journeying, is the only place that it is legal to interact with manatees in the wild. You will first have a guided pontoon boat ride around Crystal River before the experience of a lifetime. You can your own adventure by either snorkeling, paddleboarding, or kayaking in the river!  If you are lucky, you will get to meet and interact with the beautiful manatees. They are very playful animals and will often come up to people and want attention. The river is home to about 80 manatees, but during the winter months, nearly 300 will join the warm waters.

Airboat Ride


Next, you'll be taken to Withlacoochee River which will be a 30-60 minute drive away. Once you arrive, you will board an airboat for a thrilling 30-minute ride. This unique experience takes the group through some of the most sparkling waters of the area, providing looks at local wildlife such as manatees, birds, fish, turtles, and more. On this ride, you'll get to experience authentic Florida at its best!

Admission to Wildlife Park

Admission to the Homosassa Wildlife Park is also included on this adventure. After the airboat ride, you'll head to the park which is another 30-60 minute drive. You will also have a boxed lunch during the ride that will include a sandwich of your choice, chips, and a drink. The park is one of the area's best-kept secrets. Here, you'll see more manatees, bears, and a hippopotamus. With a floating observatory, guests can see more of the interesting manatees while relaxing and unwinding. The park is also home to a children's education center and provides opportunities for bird-watching and Wildlife Encounters with snakes and more.

At the end of the tour, you'll be transported back to your Orlando hotel. Grab the family and check out this one-of-a-kind experience in Florida; perfect for the young marine biologist, do not miss out on this once in a lifetime experience to interact with endangered animals up close.

"We had lots of fun on the boat ride"
We had lots of fun on the boat ride, seen the wildidlife , just was a little disappointed that the area where we were swimming with the manatees was so urban . But over all we had a great time!

"This was an excellent experience for our whole family!"
This was an excellent experience for our whole family! We all got to see the manatees up close - 6 away - and watch them swim by us. The boat operators were very informative and entertaining. The wildlife park was beautiful to wander through as well. The fanboat was a lot of fun to ride on, and seeing the alligators up close was exciting, especially holding the baby one!
Tip: Have some cash on hand to pay for the wet suit and to hold the baby alligator.

"This was a great excursion"
The only downside to this trip was the amount of time spent in transportation. Granted, that can't be helped given the activities. This was a great excursion, even when the weather doesn't agree.
Tip: Be prepared to spend money on photos of the manatees.
