Default Swimming with the Manatees

Can anyone tell me a good place to take my grandsons to swim with the manatees. I know its on Crystal River but there are quite a few places. Looking for a private tour of 6 people.

My wife and my grandson used Airtank Divers in Homosassa last week to swim with the manatees. Their number is 352-228-2712 and their website is manateetours.net. You definitely want to use the wet suits. The owner and his wife are sort of "crusty" but my wife and grandson had a great time.

I understand that there is a park in Crystal River where you can walk out on boardwalks and see manatees in crystal clear water.

We went over there today and couldn't find anything. Can someone help me?

Thanks but I'm just looking to walk on the docks and see the manatee from there.

We saw manatees from a walkway at Blue Springs State Park in Orange City.
