Manatees were the highlight of the trip. A little bit of a tight squeeze on the van. But overall a great day trip.

All three stops on the tour were great. Our group of 7 spent about an hour with 3 manatees. The state park was excellent and included a manatee refuge with underwater viewing windows and a zoo with a Florida panther, Florida black bear, a local citizen of Crystal River, a hippopotamus named Lu, and various birds. The airboat ride was an amazing way to finish the day.

Everything was great from pickup to drop off! The day was well planned. Our guide, Dave, had so much knowledge to share about Florida. The manatee snorkeling was AMAZING! So glad we got to see an adult and baby manatee, but apparently, November is the best time to see more! The final part of the tour was an airboat ride that unfortunately got canceled due to rain, but Real Florida Adventures will refund everyone for that portion. I highly recommend this adventure!

Extraordinary experience! If you are hesitant of booking this experience don’t be. You will love every single part of it especially the manatees. Instructions are very thorough and they pay great attention to details. Will definitely be back!

Such a fun trip. Beats the typical “Disney world” trip and cheaper too. Danny was fun and made the ride out part of the fun.

A lovely driver and commentator!! Swimming with the manatees was not only a little terrifying (ha! They’re big!) but so so beautiful. I also got to see a gator up close, that’s something I’ve also been looking forward to!

I had a brilliant day on this tour - swimming (well floating!) with the Manatees was an incredible experience. We were lucky enough to see a mum and baby manatee and spend an hour floating with them while the baby swam around us. The dive staff were great, I would definitely recommend getting the photo package after the swim. Our tour guide David was born and bred in Orlando so has all sorts of information about things we passed while travelling. The wildlife park was beautiful and peaceful (more manatees and lots of other Florida wildlife to see) all the animals looked well cared for with signs explaining how many of them had been rescued. Sadly we missed the airboat ride this time (we were refunded for that part) due to storms but I had a day I'll never forget. Don't worry if you're not a strong swimmer - we had wetsuits and pool noodles to float on and the dive team gave full instructions for using the snorkels for anyone using them for the first time.

Brad was a great host and driver. The tour was all day and very well organized. I loved the manatees and the airboat ride the most!

This was without the highlight of our trip so far - what an experience. Brilliantly organised day out and led by a friendly and knowledgeable tour guide (thanks Dave!) we were just in awe and will definitely return if the opportunity arises. Snorkelling with the manatees we spent time and interacted with a mother and calf on their terms - such amazing creatures. A quick stop at the wildlife park let us see some amazing animals that are native to Florida- the park isn’t that big but there is plenty to see. The lunchbox provided was perfect - a tasty sub with some crisps, cookies and lemonade. Off to the air boat ride which was just an incredibly fun experience- sit at the front if you want to get a little wet! We say lots of wildlife as we cruised in the river - gators, turtles, fish and may amazing birds. The whole day was perfect and yes we’re we’re fortunate to see everything and the weather was great - in September that’s not a guarantee! Advice? Do it. You won’t forget it, ever. You don’t need to be a confident diver or ‘snorkler’ - you’ll be fine as you really just float along in a wetsuit with a big floatation noodle. The day was so slick, informative and Dave was a superb host - cannot fault anything so a massive thank you from our family for making a very special memory we will never forget.

Swimming with the manatees was amazing, there was a mother and calf that came right up to us. The air boat ride was great, saw lots of alligators! We couldn't have had a better driver, Dave, who was very informative and friendly.

Swimming with manatees was amazing! We had a manatee come up and play with us. It was a rememberable experience. The air boat ride was so fun, seeing alligators and other wildlife. The wildlife park was ok, a little disappointing as some of the animals were out away due to the rain. Overall it was a brilliant day out! Dave our tour guide was excellent. He had lots of knowledge and lots of stories!

Paul was an excellent tour guide. Getting us to all the places in a timely and safely manner. All three stops had knowledge staff, and made our experience memorable. I highly recommend booking this while in the area. You won't regret it!

I should give perfect score but there was one tour that was not good. And that was the Florida Manatee Adventure.The one who toured us who was a lady sucks. She scolded and shouted at me in front of other travelers and bystanders. She thought I am not following instruction by swimming infront of the manatee but the whole story was that I can't control the water to avoid going to the manatee. At first, she told us we just practicing to get use of the equipment and the water. Then I just found out the manatee was with us. I am a good swimmer and diver but I am not comfortable with the foam on the body. That was the first shameful event in my whole travel. The lady instructor didnt bother to see the reason why. Instead of shouting at the customer ( she even said stupid at my back) she should help me how to control the water so that I will not hurt the manatee. No one wanted to hurt the animal. I was so lucky to have videos with the manatees without her help. The pictures for $42 was no good. The pictures were crapped taken by the lady. I am not recommeding this tour - FLorida Manatee Adventure in Crystal River. I gave one star promise. Maybe you will encounter my own experience with the Lady instructor. So rude. Please relay my comment to the one in charge handling the Florida Manatee Adventure. The lady instructor who is blonde sucks. As to Everglades Style Airboat, you will have good time. The Driver deserves good tip. Nice Adventure in Homosassa River. As to overall, our tour guide for the whole tour was awesome. David ( forgot his name) was charming, funny , very entertaining.
