Manatee Tour Questions

Water can vary from 4 feet to 24 feet deep.  We do provide pool noodles for all guests but anybody wishing to go in the water should be able to at least float calmly.

Why do we have to rent a wetsuit?

All swimmers must rent a wet-suit if they wish to enter the water.  ($10 plus tax).  This is arranged on the morning of the tour once you arrive at Crystal River.  The main purpose of wearing a wet-suit in this situation is to aid in keep you buoyant and still on the surface of the water.  Splashing around will only scare manatees away.  A wet-suit helps keep you afloat and also assists with the year round 72 degree temperature of the water :).  We have ALL sizes from small child to 6XL, we will have a wet-suit that fits you!
