#16 of 44 in Outdoors in Crystal River
We started off as just a couple of locals who were inspired by the privilege unique to Citrus County..… swimming with the manatees! We realized our desire to share this privilege with others, and uncovered a passion for doing it the right way!

We truly believe wildlife encounters have a legitimate place in education. We are proof that close-up encounters inspire more than a picture or a memorable story. When done responsibly these encounters can be a life-changing experience, and create other like-minded individuals who wish to be respectful of Mother Earth and her inhabitants.

We commit to delivering our visitors the best nature encounters in the most sustainable way. Locally owned AND operated, we care deeply about our community and the future of our wildlife encounters. We thrive off our desire to educate all visitors and hope to inspire the inner nature lover of each person that steps foot through our door. It is this inspiration that encourages improvements necessary to create a bright future for our manatee friends. It is this inspiration that is necessary to protect and preserve nature’s playground for our children and for future generations to come. For Explorida and beyond, use our Crystal River trip planner to get the most from your Crystal River vacation.

  • Excellent experience from the beginning! Started with telephone booking, after speaking with Kim we were even more excited to begin our venture, Kim worked with us on a scheduled tour to fit our limited time frame. Arrived and was warmly greeted by the owners and staff, Anthony, Kim and Ashley. The boat accommodations were great. The boat was clean and new with refreshments offered. Ashley and Captain Anthony gave us an amazing day that exceeded our expectations. We had an amazing day interacting with playful Manatees and learning how to respect them and their world!!
  • What an awesome experience! The guide Ashley was very informative and knowledgeable! The water a little cool but we were able to see about 12 Manatees and 2 were babies. Well worth the trip!!! Highly recommend!!
