Swimming with manatees in Crystal River, Florida!
Welcome to Plantation on Crystal River
A hidden gem located on the Nature's Coast of Florida and the Gulf of Mexico, our beautiful 50-year-old eco-friendly and green luxury resort hotel's surrounded by the natural springs of Kings Bay. This bay, in Crystal River, is one of the largest aquifers in the state and home to more than 800 West Indian Manatees that migrate each year to the warmth of the springs.
Snorkel with the Manatees of Crystal River
Manatee tour experiences are best done by snorkeling while wearing wet suits, making the interaction as silent as possible, and the manatees more inclined to approach and get close. We maintain new suits and snorkel gear, all included in our manatee tours, as well as full-service facilities for changing, videos and pictures of your manatee experience, and more. This is a once-in-a-lifetime travel opportunity, where you can swim alongside these gentle giants as they play, eat, and socialize with one another. There is no better place to have a Florida manatee experience than with the Plantation on Crystal River Adventure Center.
