Unparalleled Diving Adventures with Manatees in Crystal River
Manatee Count Inside the Manatee Sanctuary Hits a Record High in 2011! See a Picture Now!
There is no finer way to explore the magical underwater world of the “Nature Coast” than by scuba diving. The sparkling waters of the Crystal River beside the Plantation Golf Resort and Spa provide access to the very best Florida diving. From November through March, be prepared to meet the gentle giant of the river, the Florida manatee, source of the mermaid legend. Other popular sites include King’s Springs, downriver from the Plantation Golf Resort & Spa, and many caves and grottoes of King’s Bay. Do not miss the excellent Florida diving at Rainbow Springs (named for its amazing variety of multi-colored fish and plants), Devil’s Den, and Blue Grotto, all of which are within easy driving distance from The Plantation Golf Resort & Spa.
“But I don’t scuba,” you say. With expert professional instruction at the Plantation Golf Resort & Spa, you can become a certified scuba diver in just three days. But if time does not allow, how about snorkeling in the glassy shallows of the Crystal River? You’ll probably still get to see a Florida manatee or two! Especially in the winter time, as the warm 72 degree water draws hundreds of these gentle giants annually. Choose from a variety of dive tours, boat rides, and snorkeling options below.
