Definitely a 5 star experience and will recommend to family and friends. Everyone in our party felt very safe and well informed with the expert guidance of Capt. David and Irish Dave. They did a superb job and helped us see many manatees and their babies.
Great experience! Staff was very knowledgeable - very professional, well informed and
protective of the environment and the manatees. We especially loved 'Captain Stubb and
Lindsay. We had a blast.
Everything about this tour was fantastic! From the price, to the guides and even the manatees themselves, everything was perfect. The thing I was most worried about was that all these kinds of tours because there are many of them going on all the time would be detrimental to the manatees and their habitat. But there are many rules and regulations that the tour strictly adhered to, giving the manatees human-free zones and basically letting the manatees decide if they want to interact with humans or not. My wife had a really amazing one-on-one encounter with a very friendly manatee. We are already thinking about the next time we might be able to do this amazing tour again!
Very friendly, experienced staff and floated with 2 mom manatees and their babies -- excellent!
This was an amazing adventure. The staff was professional and very helpful. The trip was on time and lasted 3 hours, as advertised. There was plenty of time in the water and we had positive interactions with multiple manatees.
The experience was wonderful. The guide and captain were informative and very careful our group respected the environment, rules and manatees. Other groups clearly weren't educated prior to jumping in. thanks!
The tour was really great and the Manatee swim was wonderful. Two members of our party swam with the manatees and said they saw too many to count. We could not swim, so watch from the boat but saw numerous manatees. One even came up to the boat and chewed on our anchor line. We got good pictures and the tour guide filmed those who were swimming with the manatees. While it was a bit chilly the morning we went out, it warmed up and was a great 3 hours. Our guide and boat captain were great and provided us with a lot of information on the ecology of the area around Crystal River and what was being done to increase the natural food supply for the manatees.
I was impressed. The staff was friendly and helpful. My daughter and I promised to do this again this winter break. I felt safe every moment. Worth every penny and a healthy tip. See you in December!
We had a wonderful tour and tried really hard to follow the rules.Our boat captain was awesome and so very knowledgeable abot anything you could want to know about these docile mammals.Also the man that swam with us the whole time made sure we all got to get to see the manatees as the visibility wasn't great that day.He also was very knowledgeable and captured some good pictures of our awesome adventure.Loved it and praying the hurricane doesn't disrupt or hurt these lovely animals!
Boat captain and guide were wonderful--very approachable, helpful and informative. Office staff were warm and friendly and kindly returned my phone calls since we were wondering if the storm would have changed our scheduled times. Informational video and educational center gave lots of interesting facts and made us fall in love with the gentle manatees.
Our whole family had a blast! I was at first worried, because being summertime we were told there are not as many manatees around but ensured us we'd definitely spend time with some them and we did! We swam with at least half a dozen manatees. incredible - we were swimming along with mama manatee and two of her babies - just beautiful! They are sweet gentle giants! Definitely will be doing this again. Everyone at Crystal Rivers was great. Our boat captains Christian and Dave gave us alot of information about manatees and gave us a generous amount of time with the manatees.
We spent 10 days in Florida, going to all the major attractions, and thisexperiance was the highlight of our trip. The crew that took our family out on the water were amazing and so much fun! I would, and have, recommended this to anyone planning a trip to Florida. Worth every penny!
Great tour - saw manatees even though it was not the best time of year for looking. Good guides too.
Terrific tour. Our Captain and tour guide were both very knowledgeable, spotted a lot of Manatee's and guided us to these magnificent animals in the water. The equipment was new, clean and in good condition. This was a highlight of our family trip to Florida. I highly recommend this trip and company to anyone.
So much fun!. We saw 6 manatees, one a huge pregnant female. Captain Casey and Gloria were great in helping children and adults alike. They found the manatees, answered lots of questions. Gloria led the group while we were in the water.
Amazing trip out to swim with the manatees. Take the early morning boat - it's much less crowded. My 8 yr old daughter got scared and came back on the boat. These animals are large! Everyone else in the family had an amazing time and we still got some great views from the boat anyway.
We loved everything about Crystal River! Our Manateee tour was a lot of fun, we ate at the Greenhouse several times (which is by far the best food you will eat EVER) and it was such a beautiful little town.
Great crew, had a fun time, only wish was there where a few more manatee's, but it was off season in the middle of the summer. We still got to see a mother and calf, all in all we really enjoyed the trip.
We had a great time and were able to swim with a couple of manatees even in the off season when there weren and #39;t as many about. The staff are extremely knowledgeable and very safety-conscious both with the humans and the manatees!
A great tour, our two guides were knowledgeable, Got to see 6 manatees and it was a wonderful experience.
Enjoyed this very much. Capt. Rhonda and Tanner were able to give us 2 significant interactions with the Manatees and several sightings from the boat. Excellent stewards for the protection of these wonderful animals
We had a great tour on March 15th, 2016. JJ was our guide and Rhonda the Captain. It was relaxing, exciting and very informative for our family of five.
