Swimming with manatees can be a fantastic experience for the whole family. Whether your child expresses interest in marine life or you are looking for something new to do in the upcoming year, manatee tours are a great way to have an enjoyable and enriching vacation.
If you are wondering where to swim with manatees, Citrus County, Florida is the only place in the United States that you can legally swim with these creatures. Florida manatees were at one time an endangered species, but the species has been thriving since preservation efforts began around 1975. Now the Florida manatee population has grown to over 6,000 animals and has been reclassified from an endangered to a threatened species by the federal Endangered Species Act.
At Bird’s Underwater, we offer a unique experience where you can swim and snorkel with manatees at our location in Crystal River. All of our guides are in-water professionals and will provide adequate instructions for how to snorkel and interact with these magnificent animals.
We have two conveniently located waterfront properties for rent for you to relax in when you are not making memories in the water. Book your tour today for the whole family to swim with manatees in Florida! You can reach us at (352) 563-2763 or send us an email through our contact page.
