Owner description: Fun 2 Dive / Capt Joe is a Professional Eco-tour guide service that has been guiding customers for the past 31 years. We also offers Scuba / Snorkeling tours and training through out Florida. For the certified scuba divers we dive wrecks, reefs, caverns and springs. For a true Florida Eco-Adventure and my favorite, our manatee snorkeling trip which is offered only as a full day tour, with a very small group up to 6 people. This is great for the whole family 3 years an up, is all-inclusive and the best thing is NO EXPERIENCE REQUIRED. Only Capt Joe runs this tour, and is a certified in-water guide and Instructor from several accredited agencies. Since we run this as a Eco-Tour Capt Joe is also a Florida Naturalist from the University of Florida / IFAS To a full scuba certification, and many specialty classes from top rated Instructors. Our shop / office is centrally located in Sanford Florida. To meet at the shop reservations are required, since we're the guides and do not hire outside help. The Sanford locates is where we conduct all scuba diver training, snorkeling and swimming lessons. Our trips, range from the Orlando area, Crystal River, and West Palm Beach. Depending on which tour you decide to take. We can meet you at the shop or at the boat, which is ever easier for you. Most of our trips are with in 1.5 hours of Orlando. Thanks for looking! Capt Joe

We had a great time. Captain Joe was very professional and enthusiastic. His knowledge of the local ecosystem was impressive and his passion for mantees was refreshing. If you are planning to see manatees in Crystal River book with Fun2dive.

An excellent day out. Capt Joe was very enthusiastic, passionate and knowledgeable about the Manatees. While keen to ensure everyone obeyed the rules and did not disturb the Manatees he also made sure that we all had a great time and saw plenty of them. It was great that he only took small groups on longer tours as we clearly... More

Great weather, clear water and very nice guide. Capt. Joe told us a lot of stuff about nature environment, manatees and the problems of the manatee tourism. We saw and swim with dozens of these beautiful animals.

We first went with Capt. Joe about 15 years ago and loved it. We loved it so much that we booked it again for our daughter's 10th birthday trip. If you want someone to take your money, put you on an overcrowded boat for 2 hours, and hurry you through your day, you had better pick someone else. But, if... More

I highly recommend Capt Joe's manatee tours. He provides an all day tour and limits the group size. This provides the customer a better opportunity to see manatees and Capt Joe is the best at spotting them. The Crystal River area is beautiful, the water is clear, the river is fed by springs. You also get the opportunity to swim... More

We've always wanted to see manatees ... Captain Joe didn't disappoint, and taught us how to interact with them to avoid causing disturbance and harm.

Captain Joe is wonderful! He gave us his undivided attention both in and out of the water. We seen other tour groups (very large groups) out on the water, BUT WE had the ONLY boat captain that got in the water with us. He was able to spot the manatees and get our family into the water quickly to see... More

If I could give a 6 star rating I would! This was a birthday present for my 11 yr old daughter and she has been waiting since June to have this experience.

Captain Joe was a great tour guide, even when the water was cloudy from the rains he was still able to spot several manatees and deliver a wonderful and memorable experience. We loved that Joe shared his passion and knowledge with us and made us feel comfortable in the water. We will be going on this tour again next time... More
