They were so nice to take just the 3 of us out on a tour- we had an unintentional private tour. We really appreciated the fact that Joe was so respectful of the manatees but it was almost to his detriment. He wanted to avoid the other companies who would chase after the manatees, but with that we were afraid... More

Four of us charted a tour in late July, 2014, with Adventure Diving to snorkel with manatees. From out of state, my sweetheart and I took our two in-state hosts. I had never seen a manatee, let along swam with one. We arrived at 9 a.m., and were told it was a little late in the day, but guide and... More

I bought a "Groupon" for this adventure and, last year, mixed up the time of arrival and had to call from Sarasota to cancel. The gentleman who answered the phone told me not to forget about the expiration date and come in on our next trip. So, on our way from Cincinnati to Sarasota, we booked a first of the... More

My daughter (11yr old) and I went swimming with the manatees at the end of March 2014 (crack of dawn) and had an experience neither one of us ever will forget. We rented the wet suits which we didn't necessarily need because of the warm water temperature but were sure happy we got because they really helped us float better... More

My husband and I did a manatee tour this morning and had a fun time. The office was very crowded upon arrival, but we broke off into very small groups when it was time to leave. We were paired with one other couple who happened to be from our town! The small group made the environment very relaxing. Captain Jolly... More

I took my family of four on this tour. The water is so murky that even though we were told there were manatees around, under water you couldn't see a thing. Captain Dave kept telling us over and over that there was no guarantee that we would see a manatee, and that the water was murky because of all the... More

I took visitors to Crystal River for a snorkel with manatees trip. We got wetsuits and snorkel equipment at the office and set out on our 3-hour tour. Even though it was basically past manatee season, Captain Dave was able to find several manatees for us to swim with. The best part was swimming into Three Sisters Springs. There we... More

Called last minute after getting into town and Capt Dave was very accommodating and nice enough to get us in the schedule. The six person limit is very nice compared to the huge tour groups of 40+. Not a lot of manatees but it was the end of the season. Snorkeling Three Sisters spring almost alone with my 8 year... More

Very personal experience, Captain Dave was amazing, he was the best experience I've ever had with a tour guide. They have over 40 manatee diving tours in crystal river and after seeing how many people were on the other boats compared to ours was amazing. I loved the personal experience and truly had one of the best days ever! I... More

My husband and I just got off our first manatee snorkling tour and had a blast! Although the check-in building was a bit shabby, the staff and overall tour couldn't have been better! The rental gear was all in good condition and worked well. The staff were all friendly and eager to share their knowledge and answer any questions, particulary... More
