Watch as this manatee hitches a ride on an unsuspecting snorkeler | Crystal River, Florida

Did you know manatees are curious creatures? Watch as this manatee sneaks up on a snorkeler in the King's Spring area of Crystal River, Florida. We had booked a tour to swim with the manatees with the Plantation Adventure Center. The experience exceeded our expectations as we were able to experience friendly manatees, like this one, up close while practicing passive observation. Manatees are protected and one must follow the rules and guidelines when in the presence of these gentle giants. Booking a tour with an experienced company is recommended.
