These guys are the best if you want an awesome experience with the manatees! I have been out with Don & Elisa 4 times now in the past 15 years. I've been with the other tour companies as well, but since I found them I won't go with anyone else. They're very laid back & really care about the manatees... More

This was a great trip to swim with the manatees. I was a little hesitant about swimming with them (due to ecostewardship not fear of them), so I thought this would be a better alternative than Crystal River. I was correct. This was a small-scale operation that didn't crowd the manatees and gave them their space. The heated boat was... More

We will be taking our third tour soon, and I know we won't be disappointed. It's an experience my kids look forward to every year. Air Tank Divers make sure every person gets to experience interactions with the manatees. They even took pictures and videos with our phone so

We have gone on several tours but air tank divers is the best by far. They made sure we saw manatees; we were able to pet some. We have gone with air tank divers 3 times and do not recommend anyone else. Captain Don is the best and his wife Elisa will take photos for you. The best!!! Penny Shaw.... More

Like all of the reviews have said to date - do not judge a book by its cover. Don and Lisa run a no frills shop and could use an up to date version of the mandatory DVD Manatee Manners. However they do truly care for the welfare of the manatees and have a great boat with a heater, change... More

I travel to Citrus County every six months in order to snorkel with manatees. Normally, I spend all of my time in Crystal River because the Homosassa River used to have poorer visibility and was too crowded. Fast-forward to yesterday when I decided to give Homosassa another try by going out with this mom and pop operation, Air Tank Divers.... More

A group of friends went on this tour in December and we had a blast! Don't judge the meeting place, it's a little older but the boat is great and we saw tons of manatees! For the price you can't go wrong. Don and Lisa were great hosts taking hundreds of pictures on my phone and pointing out where to... More

I echo what other reviewers have said. My family spent a few days at the amusement parks in Orlando over Christmas 2014 and I was looking for something a bit more relaxing and thought snorkeling with Manatees would be a great experience for my kids (ages 14 and 15). I began investigating manatee encounters on the internet in November 2014... More

After snorkeling with the manatees at Crystal River a few years ago, we decided to try it at Homosassa with our kids. It was unseasonably warm, so the chances for manatee encounters was more limited, but we knew that going out. Captains Don & Lisa were very friendly & helpful. We were fit with wetsuits (all nice quality) and watched... More

Meeting point looks a bit shabby at first, but do not get put off. Great service and very nice people! Genuinely interested in the Manatees and in finding some who want to play. Homosassa is not too crowded with operators either. We had a couple young ones who loved getting their bellies scratched :-) Highlight of our Xmas holiday in... More
