Crystal River Paddle with the Manatee

April 21 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Join Michele Benton, owner and instructor with Om Sunshine Yoga & SUP Yoga on an adventure exploring the waters of King’s Bay and Hunter Springs in Crystal River Florida, the winter home to hundreds of manatee. This will be a 2 1/2- 3 hour fun paddle in the beautiful waters near the Gulf of Mexico.

Crystal River is the best place in the whole world to view the manatee in their natural habitat!  From http://www.savethemanatee.org/– “If you live “up north,” you know that fall has arrived when the leaves turn color and snow flurries signal the start of winter. In Florida, the changes are much more subtle. But we know for sure that winter has officially arrived when manatees appear at warm water sources around the state.”

During our adventure, I will set up an anchor system near Three Sisters Springs and give you the chance to snorkel and/or take pictures.

For our West Coast friends this is a day trip, for East Coast adventurers, The Plantation on Crystal River has reasonable rates with a lot of amenities and some rooms have water views. If you are interested in staying, feel free to call or email me and I will help you make a plan and as always, feel free to contact me with any questions.     386-956-4787 michele@omsunshine.com
