Manatee EtiquetteWhen you swim with manatees, you will feel the urge to swim towards or after the manatees, but we ask that you resist the urge to do so. Chasing manatees is considered harassment and is actually against the law.
Yes, thousands of people come to Crystal River every year and swim with manatees. It is fun and exciting to swim with these magnificant creatures. People come from all over the world to swim with manatees. Manatee Adventures provides manatee tours year-round.
Yes, it is quite safe to swim with manatees. They are very gentle by nature and move slowly in the water, when not resting or sleeping on the bottom. Young manatees are interestingly curious and playful at heart.
The best time is during winter months, because there are several hundred manatees in the area. However, manatee tours are available year-round. The best time of the day is during daylight. Mid-morning through mid-afternoon provides the best visibility.
The best place to swim with manatees is at one of our popular fresh-water springs, such as Three Sisters Springs. You will need a boat or kayak to reach the springs by water. Wearing a mask and snorkel makes the experience much easier and more enjoyable.
