All-Inclusive Swim With Manatees Tours


Our local tour guides will take you on a three hour guided tour that is the VERY best way to see manatees in Crystal River.  Customers prefer our guided kayak or paddleboard manatee swim tours because of the intimacy and freedom, along with the personal interaction with our local guides.  Instead of joining many people on a pontoon, we do small group tours to kayak or paddleboard peacefully with a few others and a guide.  Our "Swim With Manatee Tours" are great for families and include everything you need for an experience of a lifetime.  We take you to the best locations to see and swim with manatees including outside of the world-famous Three Sisters Springs.  Three Sisters Springs is closed to paddlers from November 15th through March 31st so our tours go outside of Three Sisters Springs to give manatees their space during these dates.  This all-inclusive tour comes with a full-length wetsuit, kayak or paddleboard, dive flag, snorkel gear, water, and one of our amazing tour guides.  From November 15th through March 31st, which is officially Manatee Season, we GUARANTEE you will see a manatee or your money back on this tour! 

This amazing all-inclusive tour is ONLY $69 per person and books up quickly so we recommend booking online sooner than later.  We also know there are a lot of decisions to make before planning your trip, so we make it easy with our "RESERVE NOW, PAY LATER" option.  There are NO cancellation penalties ever, so book your "Swim With Manatee Tour" with Paddles Outdoor Rentals and feel the difference...

Manatee Season runs from

November 15th through March 31st!

Manatee Season runs from November 15th through Match 31st each year.  It is customary to wear a wetsuit, snorkel, and mask when swimming with the manatees. The wetsuits help keep you buoyant, which makes it easier to float in the resting position while swimming with manatees.  The springs are a constant 72F or 21C, so the wetsuits also assist you in staying warm.  ​Without the wetsuits, mask, and snorkel, you are at risk of accidentally harming or harassing a manatee. This can be penalized fines up to $100,000 or up to 1 year in jail.  Three Sisters Springs is closed to all vessels during Manatee Season but is occasionally open to swimmers during these times.  When the springs are open for swimming, you are allowed to tie up the warning ropes outside of the springs and swim in.  This is a daily decision and is not guaranteed ahead of time and can be closed or open at any random time.  More updated information is available online with Three Sister Springs Information Center.
