Manatee swim encounter
Manatee Swim Tours
Offered November – March ( Manatee Season )
Let us give you an amazing experience swimming with the manatees on Homosassa River!
This is truly a magical once in a lifetime experience for most people so we make sure to provide you with the best memorable time you’ll never forget!!!
Manatees are truly the most humble and docile aquatic mammals that make the beautiful crystal clear springs their home in the winter time. This gives you the opportunity to get in the water and have a up close and personal experience swimming with them! Manatees are naturally curious and often social in the wild so it’s very common to have an incredible playful interaction with them, or possibly even a lovable manatee kiss.
We provide an experienced inwater guide to help you get the most out of this magical interaction and take photos so you have memories to go home with.
Swimming with the manatees is a privilege that we take very seriously. It is very important to respect their space and not disrupt their natural behavior.
On the boat ride to the springs we teach you all about manatee’s behavior, anatomy and why the River & Springs is important for their survival!
We instruct you on the proper swim techniques to interact with these lovable gentle giants. Your behavior in the water is the biggest factor on what kind of encounter you will have! If you’re calm and quiet like a manatee, chances are they will come greet you and want to hang out!!!
We provide: Boat, Captain, Manatee Education, Snorkel Gear, Wetsuits, Float Noodle, Inwater Guide & Photos.
