Shhh…we have ansecret! Our Manatee Fun Houseboat is an awesome semi-private option. You get to enjoy the personal attention of being with a small group but pay just a portion of the price of private tours! Manatee Fun specializes in accommodating less than 6 passengers per vessel, and that can make a huge difference when it comes to the quality of your encounter.
Enjoy the unique privilege that is exclusively ours here in Citrus County Florida by swimming with the manatees in the spring-fed King’s Bay Wildlife Refuge! Crystal River is home to the world’s largest population of endangered manatee during the winter season, and even a small population the warm months. Having the chance to encounter these curious, gentle giants in their natural habitat is an adventure that your family will never forget!
Embark on your journey with a Coast Guard Certified Master Captain and an in water chaperone, educator and photographer. This tour will run three hours from start to finish and everything you will need is included for one price. You will begin at our full-service tour facility, where you will be educated about the animals in a classroom type setting and receive tips for your snorkel tour to make the most of your day. You will be taught the in’s and out’s of ‘passive interaction’ as this ensures that the animals enjoy the experience as much as we do! You will then be suited up and transported to the dock, where your Manatee Fun House Boat will be waiting for you.
Start your morning on the Manatee Fun Houseboat for a memorable manatee encounter and wrap it up with a guided Segway tour of Crystal River! Crystal River Segway tours are an outstanding way to see the local sights and enjoy just a bit more Nature in your day. While you are here, it's a great idea to do a bit more exploring and Captain Broderick can lead the way in confidence! He has developed a special trek just for our visitors that may include hotspots like Hunter's Spring and King's Bay Park, the mansions of King's Bay, Heritage Village, the manatee bridge, sections of the Withlacoochee bike trail and much, much more. Why stride when you can glide??
Each and every guest gets personal training on the Segway PT to ensure safety and comfortably. Our trained staff will work with you as long as it takes! Before you sign your release forms we make sure you are ready to go.

River Ventures and Manatee Fun will be your home base, and the Segway tours depart from outside our facility. No need to drive your family to a secondary location! Segway start time is customized depending on which manatee tour time you choose.
