Capt Mike’s Swimming with the Manatees

Capt Mike’s Swimming with the Manatees.

Captain MIke's Swimming with the ManateesAt the Crystal River Best Western, animal life and human life come together in a very special way. Everyday, people travel from near and far to visit Captain Mike and swim with the manatees. Manatees are large, fully aquatic, gentle animals that feed primarily on sea grasses and various algae. And when it comes to Manatees, Captain Mike is a specialist. With years worth of experience in the manatee tours industry, and decades spent working as a boat captain, Captain Mike brings an unmatchable level of understanding, experience and care to the manatee tours industry.

It all starts at check in. When you check in at the manatee tours desk, you are fitted for a wet suit to wear while swimming with the manatees. After you have been properly fitted for your suit, you will participate in a short instructional presentation that includes a video issued by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service. The presentation serves to ensure both your safety and that of the manatees. After all, we at Swimming with the Manatees are here because we love the manatee. Our number one focus is on the safety customers and manatees. Just as it should be!

Once the presentation has concluded, you will get to meet Captain Mike and begin the once in a lifetime experience of swimming with manatees! You will dive into the waters and swim alongside these gentle giants. Our customers have fantastic adventures while learning how friendly and playful the manatees are up close. It is truly an experience you will never forget. With Captain Mike at the helm, Swimming with the Manatees becomes an adventure nothing short of magical. But don’t take our word for it. Visit!

Captain Mike's Swimming with the Manatees boasts the best water adventure in Crystal River, Florida with lots of things to do for you and your family. For more information, contact us, or call us at (352) 571-1888.
