Crystal River Preserve State Park  — Crystal River, Florida

Have you ever dreamed of going snorkeling with manatees? If so, this is the place for you!

Located roughly 2 hours outside of Tampa, FL, you, friends, and family can go snorkeling! We know what you’re thinking, swimming with such a large animal, isn’t that scary? Although it can be easy to be overwhelmed by these giant creatures, they are harmless. The manatees are most active in the morning, so to enjoy the full experience, we recommend making your time as early as possible. Crystal River is a great experience for all! If snorkeling isn’t for you, make sure to check out their site for other fun activities you can set up.
