Your day starts in Orlando with an all-you-can-eat breakfast. Then it's off to join a team of manatee experts for a narrated boat cruise on the picturesque Crystal River, home to one of the world's largest populations of endangered West Indian manatees. This large, harmless aquatic mammal (sometimes called a "sea cow") is under threat due to loss of habitat.

With mask and snorkel provided, you are encouraged to go for a swim and snorkel while under the guidance of certified dive masters. After your cruise, enjoy a picnic-style lunch overlooking this beautiful sanctuary.

In the afternoon the adventure continues with an exhilarating 45-minute airboat ride on the Homosassa River. Keep your eyes open for manatees and dolphins, as well as a host of other wildlife that often accompany the group.

To end your day, you'll visit Homosassa State Wildlife Park, famous throughout Florida for the rehabilitation of injured animals. You'll have the chance to see the current manatee residents during an informative and entertaining feeding session with a park ranger. You can also see bears, panthers, alligators and even a hippo as you explore the rest of the park.

Manatee season is from October to March. Sightings are very common however as the animals are wild, no guarantee can be made.

Have your own car? Why not drive yourself and save money? The self-drive option includes the Manatee swim and all your snorkel gear necessary - wetsuit, mask and snorkel and directions to the departure point. Please note the airboat ride, Homosassa State Wildlife Park admission and meals are not included in this option.
