Swim with the Manatees
Dive into the sparkling waters of Crystal River for a personalized trip this summer. This beautiful body of water marks the home of some of the most majestic and unique creatures in the world, the manatees. When you swim beneath the surface, you can come up close with these magnificent sea mammals. Escape from the crowded Orlando area and head into the world of the manatees for a full day of exploration that you will never forget. These creatures are incredibly playful, and allow you to look and touch – you may even get the chance to tickle their stomachs!
Dolphin Encounter Tour
If you just can’t get enough of playful creatures after the manatees, then spend some time with the dolphins. Known for their cool tricks, their usual happy disposition and their friendly encounters with people, dolphins have a pretty good rep. Now, you can see them in their natural habitat as you explore the Gulf of Mexico. Get a truly indescribable and incomparable look, first-hand, at these incredibly intelligent and exceptionally entertaining creatures.
Gators, Gators, Gators!
These animals may not have quite as good a reputation as the dolphins and the manatees, but that doesn’t mean that they are any less thrilling. Explore Gatorland theme park’s 110 acres of native Florida wildlife, then climb into an airboat for an up-close and personal look at the wildlife in its natural habitat. You’ll see birds, deer and, of course, gators. Your captain will answer any questions you may have about the area and the wildlife, as well as provide you with insightful narration throughout the experience. Spend the day with one of the more feared creatures in Florida, and get a different outlook on them. You’ll probably never think of them the same way again.
Deep Sea Fishing in the Atlantic
Though this adventure is not recommended for those of you that are anything like me and get terribly seasick, an exciting day on the Atlantic Ocean may appeal to those of you who love to fish. For a full day, you will get the opportunity to try your hand and your luck at catching red snappers, groupers, sea bass and, perhaps, even a shark! You’ll get the chance to see all of the beautiful sights of the ocean, as well as get a memorable adventure on this 85-foot long fishing vessel.
