Sat-Sun 2/8-2/9, 8:00am, Rainbow River Cruise and Crystal River Manatee Snorkel: Come join us for a fun filled weekend swimming with the manatees in Crystal River, FL.
We will leave Saturday morning and eat lunch in Dunnellon just prior to taking a pontoon boat cruise on the Withlacoochee River. We’ll have a group dinner and breakfast in one of the cabins the next morning. It’s a short drive up to Crystal River where we’ll jump on a pontoon boat to explore the river and snorkel with the manatees.
We have two cabins at the Rainbow Rivers Club, a beautiful 55-acre property surrounded on three sides by the Rainbow and Withlacoochee Rivers. There is a beautiful clubhouse, an outdoor swimming pool, paddle boats and Jon boats - all available for your use at no extra cost when a guest at the facility.
Each cabin sleeps five with one double, two single beds and a futon. The combined cost for the cabin and pontoon boat for the first day is $40 per person.
