Every year, hundreds of Manatees gather in the freshwater springs of Crystal River, Florida.  Swim with these amazing animals during the 2021 Manatee Snorkel Trip!  The trip takes place January 22 – 24.  This is a great opportunity for everyone, from photographers to families with kids.

We’ve planned a weekend full of fun for you!  Begin each morning with a Manatee Snorkel Tour, featuring delicious hot cocoa.  Then on Saturday afternoon, drift along the colorful Rainbow River.  Snorkel or SCUBA dive among waving grasses and freshwater fish.

In the evenings, relax at the Plantation on Crystal River.  This waterfront hotel features free kayak rentals, lawn games and more!  You can also enjoy the on-site spa and driving range, heated pool and hot tub.  Each room overlooks the waterway.  Upgrade your room to include an outdoor patio.

The 2021 Manatee Snorkel Trip includes all activities, entry fees, parking fees, and hotel.  Enjoy a yummy hot breakfast  each morning.  Start your day with eggs, bacon or sausage.  Top off your meal with home fries and toast, or pancakes.  Prefer a lighter snack? Yogurt & Granola Parfaits are available too.

Standard trip pricing includes double occupancy.  Single occupancy, child rates and room upgrades are available.
