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

We booked this tour at the spur of the moment after another tour operator cancelled on us due to “excess wind”. Don was away from the business when we first got a hold of him, but he sped home and phoned his crewmate Lisa to be prepared for six visitors headed their way. Within a few minutes of talking to...

My husband and I arrived at the house at 7:30am and got a great run-down by Don of Manatee behavior, what to-do and not to do and tips to interact successfully with them. We were geared up and on the boat by 8:15am, then arrived at the anchor point and were meeting our first manatee within 5 minutes! There were... More

We were lucky to have a cold spell hit the springs the evening prior to our arrival so that we had manatees coming in to the warmer temperatures of the spring - plenty of manatees for the 9 of us who were in the water that day. Lisa was kind to take non - stop pictures for all of us... More

Great day in Homosassa! Our second time with captains Elisa and Don. We made our first experience in march 2012. We saw a lot of manatees, touched them and played with them. We even had an encounter with a baby manatee. It came to us and embraced us with its fins. In march 2014 we returned to homosassa and had... More

This is my third and best time I have ever had with the Manatees. The other two times were with big companies on the crystal river. Not only was Captain Don and wife very nice but they were very knowledgeable. They had a heated boat with a changing room which was so nice and convenient for my family which included... More
