By popular demand - we’ve added a second session!

It’s time again for our annual manatee snorkel!

As the oceans cool down, the gentle manatees seek refuge in the warmer, spring-feed waters of Crystal River. We’ve had a great time snorkeling with them the past few years.

The beauty of this trip is it doesn’t require any scuba experience ~ just the ability to float in the water wearing a mask and snorkel and (of course) have a good time! Your kids will love this experience!

We’ll have a private pontoon boat on the tranquil Crystal River where manatees frequent.

Water temps are a bit chilly so a 5 mm wetsuit is recommended (a full 3 mm or higher is required by our operator). Wetsuits, mask, and snorkel rentals are available on site for an additional fee ($12 for wetsuits and $8 for mask, fins, and snorkel) or you can always rent from your local dive shop. You might also consider a underwater camera or video to capture the experience.

We’ll provide homemade goodies, snacks, water, and hot chocolate. We will also share all of our video and pictures of your adventure - free!

Full payment is due at time of booking.

Please complete and email your trip application to godiving@lifeunderwater when you sign up. Payments are nonrefundable if you cancel less than 14 days before the event.

Please call us at 813-708-TRIP (8747) with any questions.

Please note: Regulations are changing quickly concerning interactions with the manatees. We will be monitoring these changes to ensure that we can provide you with the best possible experience that is enjoyable and safe for both you and the manatees.

We will need a minimum of 8 total attendees to run this session.
