On October 20th 2010 my family and I traveled from Michigan to Crystal River to swim with the manatees. After reviewing several local businesses that offer tours, we decided that we would take our trip with River Ventures. From the time that we arrived until the completion of our tour we were treated like family. The staff was very friendly, and it was obvious that every one of them truly enjoys what they do. The equipment was clean and in excellent condition as were the facilities. They serve coffee, hot chocolate and donuts at the shop and they even had it on the boat. The boat only carries a maximum of 10 passengers which made the trip quite comfortable.

The captain was very knowledgeable about the area and the manatees and it only took him about 20 minutes to locate a mom and baby that were more then happy to come up and investigate the boat. We were able to float in the water with the baby while the mom ate grass nearby. This was an exceptional experience especially for our 8 year old daughter. The guide got in the water with us and he took a ton of wonderful pictures that we were able to take home with us, great memories of this special time we had with the manatees. I would suggest that you consider taking your trip with River Ventures if you find yourself having the opportunity to visit the manatees it was the highlight of our vacation.
