Follow your guide in a kayak in search of the Crystal River's manatees!

You'll begin your guided tour at Crystal River, the manatee capital of the world!

On this kayak tour you'll have the opportunity to observe manatees: this aquatic mammal lives in wetlands including Florida's marshes.

Crystal River is a favoured spot for manatees during Florida's cooler seasons. These impressive creatures spend the winter in this river as it's fed by numerous hot springs.

You'll paddle quietly in search of these animals. You'll be able to see the Hunter Springs and Jurassic Springs while listening to your guide's commentary and information about the surrounding nature.

You'll easily spot the marine animals as you paddle above them in your clear-bottomed kayak.
