I also bought the tour through Groupon. The day I went the air temp was 34 degrees. Captain Joe assured my group that the water was much warmer and it would be an great day for snorkeling with manatees. The time and attention given to explaining the manatees likes and behavior was helpful but the true love and respect for... More

We booked because if a groupon and after our experience are shocked by their low rating! Our captain was experienced and informative. The smaller craft allowed us to get into spots other groups didn't. We had 6 people in our boat. We each got to interact with a manatee and

An amazing and unforgettable day. Great people, very informative, flexible. Small groups. Easily could have fit all of the groups on one boat but gave everyone room to spread out on two. Dave and Dave were great. Main portion of the river was chilly, but back in the spring was very comfortable. (Early February). Lots of manatees on our ten... More

Just in case you don't read all the way to the bottom of this review, I'll say this here. To be fair Adventure Diving Tours did try to "make it right" in the end by offering us a free dive the next day, but it wouldn't work with our schedule and, frankly, it wasn't enough to improve my overall impression...

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
