 Manatee Excursion Experience at Crystal River, Florida!

 

Crystal River, Devil’s Den, Blue Grotto, & Rainbow River

Best Western Hotel

Prices starting at just $700!

January 17 thru January 20, 2020

 

 

Crystal River:

This trip will provide you with the rare opportunity to meet the West Indian Manatee. Currently only 1200 are left in Florida’s water, and they are on the endangered species list.  We will be offering the Manatee Awareness Specialty Course, to provide a better understanding of these rare creatures. Open to anyone! This is a snorkel experience that ANYONE can participate in!

 

Devil’s Den:

Scuba Diving At Devil’s Den Spring, what an amazing connection that can occur when one goes underwater to explore a whole new world.

On cold winter mornings you can see steam, like smoke, rising from the chimney opening. Thus, the early settlers gave the name Devil's Den. With crystal clear water, year round 72 degree water temperatures, ancient rock formations with stalactites, fossil beds dating back 33 million years, and much more, you're guaranteed to leave with memories that will last a lifetime!

 

Rainbow River Drift 1-Tank Boat Dive:

About 100 miles north of Tampa Bay, this 5.7-mile river is a genuine jewel, and lives up to its name. When sunlight hits the crystalline turquoise water, a veritable light show ensues. Glints of multicolored spectrums set the sandy bottom ablaze, mingling with the patterns of ripples reflected all around, while long, healthy kelly-green strands of sea grass — also called mermaid hair — play in motion with the water.

 

Blue Grotto:

Dive the largest clear water cavern located in the heart of freshwater spring country in Williston, Florida. The Blue Grotto lets you dive down to a depth of 100 feet (30 meters) in crystal clear water all the way down at a water temperature of 72 degrees Fahrenheit (23 degrees Celsius) all year round! The nature surrounding Blue Grotto is great for having a picnic with the family or friends between your dives. You can enjoy a relaxing BBQ after some great dives or even stay the night in one of their nice cabins by the pool.
