Captain Mike’s invites you to come snorkel or swim with manatees in the Crystal River along the Nature Coast of West Central Florida. Manatees abound in our 72 degree (year around) spring fed waters. Let these gentle creatures get close to you, they are inquisitive…but remember this is a wildlife encounter, not an amusement park.

This is by far the best time I’ve ever had in Florida. Our captain went above and
beyond to ensure the most amazing encounter possible with these magnificent
creatures. The safety and well being of the animals was the #1 priority and that was
the most impressive part of our tour. I would recommend this tour to everyone!

It was amazing to get up so close to [the manatees] and watch them. The staff was friendly and made us feel comfortable. This was an amazing experience and I would definitely recommend Captain Mike’s Swimming With The Manatees.

Captain Scott was terrific, knowledgeable, and made sure we got to see and swim with the Manatees, could not have asked for a better Captain. Will be back for sure!! Best day of our lives, definitely a Bucket List!
