Paradise Found Island Retreat

offers custom manatee tours* in the Crystal River area that are planned to include the activities that you find interesting. These tours are available for all interested, regardless if you are a registered island guest or not. When you instruct the Paradise Found Reservation Agent of what you would like to do, a unique plan is created. Our private tours allow you to experience the Real Florida with only the guests in your party. Just bring you and your guests, all you need is provided, including a licensed captain, towels, sunscreens, First Aid Kit, snorkel gear, wetsuit and life jackets, drinks and light snacks as well as pictures of your day. After visiting the manatees, the tour often has lunch then takes off again to view dolphins, tour the coast and just enjoy the Florida sun! Full day tours are usually up to 6 hours. Morning trips are usually from 8:30am (dock departure) until 2:30pm. (return to dock) and afternoon trips are available, too, along with romantic sunset cruises. Your biggest worry is to decide which of the tours you want to experience. These are private tours!
