Manatee Swim

Swim with the manatees in Florida's beautiful Crystal River! You will witness a fresh approach to ecology from a Creationist's perspective. On Saturday morning we will have an unforgettable time with the manatees. Then we're off to snorkel the enchanted Rainbow River with the experts and to enhance your fossil collection.

The Manatee Encounter is one of the best ways to share in the beauty and wonder of God's creation. After being fitted with mask, snorkel, and wetsuit, you will be on to the beautiful Crystal River. After finding the manatees, you will quietly enter the water. Once you are in the water, manatees will begin swimming right up to you. You will have the opportunity to pet, scratch, and play with these fun and altogether lovable creatures.

To top off the day, we will then drive to the Rainbow River. Here we will be able to snorkel for unique and beautiful fossils. The river is absolutely glorious, and the fossils merely add to the beauty of the experience. All the fossils that you find can be taken home to share with your friends and family!

Note: In case of bad weather or flood water, all attendees will receive a rain check for the same trip ASAP after the weather or flood has passed. No refunds.
