About Nature Coast Manatee Tours.
Nature Coast Manatee Tours is located in the Crystal River and Homosassa Springs Florida area also know as Florida's Nature Coast. Crystal River and Homosassa Springs is located in Citrus County. Citrus County Florida is well known for and the only place in the world where you can legally interact with and snorkel with The Florida Manatees. Here at Nature Coast Manatee Tours we specialize in all private and non private, manatee swim, scallop and sunset tours. Over the time that we have been doing manatee tours we have had our customers tell us, boy I'm glad we chose to go with your company. The reason why customers say this is because, imagine yourself on another tour operator's boat that has a cattle call of about twenty or more people and possibly a manatee or two around that boat. This in turn makes the experience not as enjoyable for some people. Why is this? Because some of our guests will not have that one on one manatee experience that they where looking for. This is the reason why we only book small private and non private tours. Doing small trips of six people or less is a great way for our guests to be guaranteed that one on one manatee experience. Before we take you out on your manatee snorkel adventure we will be playing a 10 minute on board video from the U.S. Fish Wildlife Service called, Manatee Manners. This video shows our guests the rules and guidelines on how to interact with the Florida Manatees on your excursion. We are conveniently located approximately 1.5 hours from Tampa or Orlando and 1 hour from Ocala. Swimming with the manatees is one of the most unique things to do in Florida and to most, an experience of a lifetime and some family's even say its even better then Sea World or Disney. On your semi private manatee tour all hot and cold beverages are included with your tour snorkeling gear is an extra 15.00 per person all gear is included on your private tour of 750.00 for up to six guests if you have a group reservations can be made via two identical houseboats parked side by side tied together at the springs where you will be swimming together with the manatees. If you are interested in one of our private or semi private tours with these gentle giants please make your reservations in advance as we book up fast certain times of the year . We also provide other fun trips too as our new appetizer cruises are a progressive dinner on water.

Cancellation Policy


All manatee tours are conducted 7 days. We have a 3 person minimum for our semi private tours. We have manatees all year round but cannot guarantee how many there will be on any given day. The manatee is a wild animal and do not fear human interaction but we cannot guarantee how they will socialize on any given day.  Please call at least 7 days in advance although you may call anytime for availability unless you are on a private tour. We please ask for you to be on time because others will want to get underway and they may have flights scheduled and things of that nature so it is very important that you allow adequate travel time. The boat can not wait longer than 10 mins. past your scheduled departure time. If you are more than 10 minutes late you will have to reschedule.
