Crystal River/Manatee swim


We were staying in Spring Hill and went up to Crystal River and booked a swim with the Manatees. The company we used were American Pro Dive, we met at their office at 7am to have a chat and get suited before going across the road down a dirt track.

To board the boat, sunrise coming up over the waters was beautiful. The water was calm, birds flitting about, oh it was such an exciting time. We had my niece who is a wheelchair user with us who did not want to swim, so I stayed on the boat with her, whilst Vic and my other Niece went into swim and snorkel. They loved it when the Manatee came slowly along side of them and really didnt seem to mind all these humans stroking/interacting with them.

We didnt miss out, on the boat it was just as enjoyable for us watching the Manatee come right up and rub their snout on the rudder then making noises. We were also able to stroke them and we loved it.

Divers go in with you, the water is as it states is crystal clear but cold. It cost us around $111 for 4 of us 2 in the water and 2 in the boat. We also bought a DVD of our tour which included all of us on the boat and in the water so no one missed out, the music on the DVD was Jimmy Buffett

Late afternoon we went to eat at Crackers. Great Ribs and Grouper well worth a visit if you have a boat you can dock it up here.
