Crystal River Manatee Season TourS
November 15-March 31

Book

This is a manatee lovers dream paddle! From November 15th to March 31st the manatee LOVE to use Crystal River as their sanctuary due to higher water temperatures.

This tour is ALL about finding the best manatee spots and utilizing our clear kayaks to give you the best viewing possible without getting wet!

Crystal River is known as the “Manatee Capital of the World.” On this tour, we want our guests to experience Manatees in their natural habitat. Crystal River is fed by dozens of natural springs, which makes it is a hotspot during Florida’s “colder” months. Between November and March, hundreds of manatees migrate inland to the springs to seek refuge and stay warm.

 We can’t control where they might be in the area, but our experienced guides will take you to where they are most active! While manatees are our main focus of this tour, we often see dolphins, fish, turtles, birds, and more! 

This 2-2.5 hour guided adventure includes a relaxed paddle through Kings Bay to Hunter Springs, Jurassic Springs, and beyond in Crystal River.

Check this paddle off your manatee bucket list! 

We launch at Kings Bay Park located at: 268 NW 3rd St, Crystal River, FL 34428
