      Seems like swim with manatees is not possible in those regions, as manatee sightings are actual rarities. Manatees are mostly river dwellers, so your best chance to see them is to come over to Florida 😉 or Mexico (Discovery @ Isla Mujeres claim to offer not only swimming with dolphins, but also swimming with manatees)

      Hope this helps!

    I swam with manatees last year in Belize, off the Reef and it was amazing. Unexpected and an unforgettable experience. I blogged about it here: lilylilyphotography.com/2011/08/postcards-from-belize-snorkeling-with-manatees-on-the-belize-barrier-reef/

    Incredible photos and great tips on how to achieve this life changing goal. My Dad was canoeing on the Weeki Wachi River in Florida last year and a couple of manatees came right up to his boat. They are beautiful animals.

      Thank you ted! That is awesome about your dad, now I want to learn more about the Weeki Wachi River, perhaps there are some outfits out there to swim with the manatees as well

    My family went to Crystal River in April 2011 and swam with the manatees, it was an amazing experience. We went with River Ventures who were fantastic and we had a very knowledgeable guide. We managed to swim with a mother and calf who were both very inquisitive. A must for anyone, will be doing it again when we go back to Florida

    Great post – awesome that you were able to find the manatees on your own!

    I was just at Xel-ha in Mexico a few weeks ago and you can also swim with manatees there. They are not in the wild though.
