Booked tour with a Groupon (lasted 2 h 50 min door to door); there were several options but we went with Adventure Diving for smaller boats and better-quality interactions. I had actually gone on a tour with this company before. This time our Captain was Joe, who was both very knowledgeable about manatees and where and how to find them.... More

This is my second time driving from Miami to Crystal River to swim with the manatees this year. I will be going again very soon! Captain Dave is the best tour guide I've ever had the pleasure of meeting & his knowledge of the area is great! He took us to a spring that was filled with manatees. They were... More

In one weeks time I swam with the manatees twice at Adventure Diving Tours. The second time I took my 19 year old grandaughter and talk about making memories-we sure did. We had a Go Pro camera and took great pictures under water of the manatees with us. The camera strap had broke so Captain Jolly rigged a strap for... More

We had an amazing experience with Capt. Joe. We saw many manatees and other creatures too. We saw an alligator, tarpon, turtles etc.. Capt. Joe pointed out lots of interesting features and was very pleasant to be around. You could tell he enjoyed his job and wanted us to have a great experience. He brought along his dog, Missy, which...

The caption was extremely negative during the entire trip. Constantly reminding us that there were 60 other companies "hunting, chasing and harassing the manatees" therefore he took us to a spot where we were not guaranteed to see manatees but at least we wouldn't harassing them. We circled the same area for about 2.5 hrs spotting bubble in the water... More

This company is fantastic! Friendly, knowledgeable, fun, and professional. We took the swim with the manatee tour and because of the time of year we knew there wasn't a 100 % chance of seeing one. We not only saw one but my children were able to touch one (because the manatee came to them and only with one open hand).... More

We made some last minute plans to get our advanced open water certificate on Labor Day and they were so accommodating, they let us take our autistic nine year old with us and even brought his wife along to watch him while he and captain Dave gave my husband and I private instruction!! They were laid back patient and really... More

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
