We hope you're sitting down, because we are about to tell you that you can indeed go swimming with manatees.
Before you pack your trunks and prepare your manatee greeting, there are some details we would like to share, which includes the following video from YouTube channel Insider.
Essentially, it illustrates all the reasons you would want to consider a trip to Florida to wade in the water with friendly animals that are perfectly content to welcome you into their home.
Go ahead and watch this and try not to book a trip.

If you are able to get out to the area, you can reserve your date with a manatee with packages that range from $59 for a three-hour experience in Crystal River to $470 for a group tour.
