There are several manatee tours in Homosassa, and Crystal River. This area is 1 - 1.5 hours drive North of Clearwater. Many manatees in those river areas.

In colder months, you can see them from a viewing center on shore here http://www.tampaelectric.com/manatee/ which is about a 50-60 minute or so drive from the beach, SE of Tampa.

See my review of when we went to Florida - we went up to Crystal River and stayed overnight - we swam with the Manatees the next day - hope you get to do it - it was a wonderful experiance.
