What could be better than swimming with manatees in Florida? How about being able to do just that for under $30? Thankfully, you can with this manatee snorkeling tour deal on Groupon.
Adventure Diving's manatee snorkeling tour will take you on a three-hour excursion through Crystal River and Kings Bay — some of Florida's most stunning clear waterways.
The tour will normally run you $55 per person, but this Groupon deal takes off a whopping 52% — costing you only $26 each. At that price, you almost can't afford to not go on this one-in-a-million experience.
On the tour, you'll be provided with a mask, snorkel, and fins to help you swim and spot these gentle sea cows and other hidden treasures beneath the surface. A wetsuit is not included but can be added for an additional cost.
According to the Groupon reviews, this is an experience that you will remember forever, getting you within inches of these sweet babies. They're super friendly and are even known to swim up to say hello.
Before you get in the water, there are some guidelines and laws in place that protect manatees as a once endangered species (now on the threatened list).
To mind your "manatee manners" — always observe them at a distance unless they approach you first. Don't ever chase them, poke them, or prod them with your hands or any item. Finally, you can only touch them using one hand and if they touch you first.
