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

I did hours of research to find the best manatee swimming experience and chose Capt. Joe and Fun2Dive due to the small group size and lengthy time we spend in the water, and it was all worth it! There were 6 people in our group and we stayed in the water for almost 4 hours and saw dozens of manatees,... More

Just spent a day on the water with Captain Bill and the Manatees. Just our 4 family members on the boat and one of our best days ever. Capt Bill's knowledge was incredible but his respect for the manatees and the environment was inspiring. He managed to keep a teenager, a child and two adults entirely engaged. He had all... More

Second trip with Fun2 Dive. Had a great time, saw lots of manatee and only four of us on the boat. Can not imagine going with one of the large boats that take so many people out. Capt. Joe even had hot chocolate for us after we got out of the water. Plan on going again next year.

Our first trip, it was cold and overcast. Started to rain as we were leaving, but a GREAT experience! Only 4 of us on our boat. I'd never travel with one of the bigger groups. Hope we'll be able to do it again!

Capt. Joe has so much knowledge, love, and respect for the Manatee that your experience can only be the very best! He only takes 6 people out per group, and after seeing all the other groups with so many people bumping into each other, I would never choose any other way to go! Not only does he give you an...

What can you say. This is the ONLY way to experience manatees. Capt. Joe is simply the best. Small groups (max 6). We had only 3 and had a fantastic time. Joe's knowledge and care for the manatees shines through. He makes sure that you have a great time, no rushing. Other groups had 10 to 15 people in the... More

I've wanted to do this trip for some time. We met our captain and received so much great information about Manatees. We were a very small group and I was glad when I saw other tours were crowded and didn't get the same experience because groups cause the manatees to scatter. What was amazing is our captain had the manatees... More

Captain Joe has an excellent set up with his tours. He only does small groups which makes for a better experience. He has tons of experience and knowledge working with manatees and a clear respect for them. It was such a treat!

Captain Joe is better than the others We saw. He is one of the only ones who get I'm the water with you. He does only one trip a day so you ate not rushed. He says he doesn't wear a watch intentionally. Very knowledgeable and informative. Very clear he enjoys his job. Thanks Joe from Pittsburgh

I have been following fun2dive for some time. After emailing others I knew that fun2dive and capt Joe was the right trip for us. Right from the start we talked about the manatees, about their history and all the facts about them in general. Joe has so much knowledge and he explains things so well. On the day of our... More
