In Crystal River Florida the Manatees 'winter'. It's the best place on the planet to swim with these gentle mammals. Over 300 Manatees gather in the Crystal River bay. 'The Three Maidens' is the name of the crystal clear magical springs where we will swim with these emissaries of Peace and Gentleness.

We will have a private pontoon boat just for us. We will leave early in the morning and be back in afternoon. You will be able to easily get in the water and swim with the Manatees. You can choose to stay on the boat and watch them from there if you don't feel comfortable in the water. Someone will literally take you by the hand and guide you in the water if you need it. Bring your own snorkel, mask and wetsuit if you have them. Otherwise for about $20/day they can be rented easily right where we'll launch from.

Since we can't control mother nature the amount of interaction and direct contact with the Manatees will vary. They are an endangered marine mammal and we can interact with them by touching and petting only if they initiate the contact. Manatees are curious creatures and often approach us for contact.

With the right respect the Manatees respond to us. We had magical occurrences on last years trip. We had 2 females with babies play with us. The baby manatees came and gently rubbed up against us and allowed us to touch them. Nature responds when we are open.

We are limiting the # of people so that we can offer a quality experience and interaction with the Manatees. In the evening we will meet and allow the days experiences to settle into us with wisdom and understanding about what the Spirit of Manatees is wanting to share with us through our 'Course of Awakening' Workshop

We recommend this Journey for anyone wanting more peace, more flow, more not getting triggered, stressed by the world around them. Someone wanting their world to flow more smoothly, more easily will benefit greatly from this trip. The reason we originally wanted to experience the wisdom of the Manatees was to allow, receive, accept the spirit of Allowing, Receiving, Acceptance into my life as an energy that would assist me in dealing with the world around me, in work, in personal relationships and with family. "Yield to overcome" is a saying among master martial artists. This is another way to describe the wisdom of the Manatees.
