Small Group Manatee Snorkel Tour with In-Water Guide and Photographer

Small Group Manatee Snorkel Tour with In-Water Guide and Photographer

Crystal River is home to beautiful fresh water springs, a large variety of wildlife, and or course our most famous residents - West Indian Manatees. During the Summer months, the Bay holds approximately 75 to 80 resident manatees.

Each winter between 700 and 1000 manatees migrate here seeking out our three first magnitude spring systems, each with a constant temperature of 72° to 74° F (23° C). Even in the warm summer months, Crystal River has a local population of 70-100 manatees that remain here year round. Due to efforts by many local, state and federal entities, our manatee population is thriving. We feel that an in-water swim experience is an important part of this education and conservation effort. Our team of highly trained in-water guides ensure your experience with this cherished and threatened species is handled with the utmost care and respect by encouraging passive observation.

With only 6 passengers per boat you are guaranteed a special small group interaction.

Itinerary

Crystal River is considered the manatee capitol of the world, and we are fortunate enough to be in one of the only places where you can have the unique experience of swimming with these gentle giants in their own natural habitat!

​Once you arrive at Salty Siren Tours the adventure begins! After checking in, you will be fitted with one of our new high quality wetsuits. (Your masks and snorkels are also included in the cost of your charter.) From there, you'll meet your in-water guide and photographer who will discuss your upcoming manatee interaction and answer any questions you may have.

After watching a short video that explains passive observation and how to properly interact in the water with our precious manatees, we will transport you to our departure location in our comfortable 15 passenger van. From there you will board your immaculately clean tour vessel for the experience of a lifetime!

After becoming comfortable in the water, your guide will escort you to passively observe and these majestic mammals. We also take underwater photos of your trip (which can be purchased for an additional fee) so you can share the manatee love!
