Captain Ron and Lauren were great. They found the perfect spot with clear water and the manatees just swam around us. This was a last minute decision to book this and I’m so glad we did. Will definitely be back again

We chose to do the small group trip at 6:30am. We ended up being the only ones that morning and it was great. As soon as we got in Crystal River the guides spotted a momma and baby manatee. My wife and I were able to swim for hours with the manatees, and even swam with them in Three Sister Springs

Really enjoyed the trip. Because of time of the year we only seen one, but huge mannatee. Planning to do it again, next year, when there may be lots more. Apreciated the help of the guide and her great photography work and also the great choco/ coffee mix. Three Sisters water spring was very clear. Go on an early tour. As it will be less crowded. Thanks guys at Small group mannatee snorkeling tours.

Had an absolutely delightful experience with Cpt Ron and Lauren!! They were knowledgeable and informative, great humor, and we had a wonderful time. even though it was off season for the manatees, they found a resident female and we were able to swim with her for quite awhile. Such beautiful creatures!!! The swim up to the Crystal Springs was breathtaking!! Overall, an absolutely wonderful experience!

Best Experience and Amazing Time

It was the best experience and an amazing time snorkeling with the manatees and Three Sisters Springs! We were greeted by Captain Ron and Diver Lauren were incredible guides. They were deeply knowledgeable and friendly. We went on the afternoon tour at 1:30 pm and it was 6 person and the manatees in the water. Lauren was a great guide and teacher. She also took great pictures of us in the water, so we did not have to worry about it. They provided coffee and hot chocolate as well. I highly recommend this tour. Once in a lifetime experience. They are the BEST and we will definitely recommend them because we definitely will do it again with them. Thank you for making this an unforgettable experience for us.

Ron and Lauryn were phenomenal and I’m so glad we used them for this experience. The two were extremely knowledgeable and accommodating, and made sure everyone got the experience of a lifetime. There was a young child on our tour and the way Lauryn made sure he had a good time and was comfortable was awesome to see. I would highly recommend doing the early tour as we saw a lot manatees and the area was not overly crowded. I would also recommend to use Ron and Lauryn as the experience in a smaller group is a lot more personal and easy as it seemed the larger groups often scared away the manatees. This was truly one of the greatest things we have experienced and we will certainly book again when we are back in the area. The pictures and videos provided were also amazing!
