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.

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. The anticipation had grown to incredible heights. I was very nervous it wouldn't meet up with expectations. Result? We had a perfect day and it soared past anything... More

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

Capt Joe is an excellent tour guide, very conversational and takes his time showing you the manatees while being very helpful in the water. Couldn't have asked for a better trip! We left at 9am and returned at 3:30pm and saw many more manatees than we ever thought we could and enjoyed many opportunities swimming along side of the massive... More

We had a truely amazing experience with Captain Joe and the memories will stay with us forever. Captain Joe not only knew so much about the manatees and the area but he also had a 6th sence is knowing where a manatee was! We did the tour in September, so low season for manatees in Crystal River and we understood... More

Capt. Joe made even my grumpy teenage boys smile, laugh and really appreciate the majestic nature of these giant gentle animals. Joe's obvious love and expertise in finding and respecting the manatees make his tour by far the one to book. He even spent time w/ my 11 y/o daughter showing her how to snorkel. The spring he took us... More

A great experience. Captain Joe is very knowledgeable and keeps everyone interested and involved. It rained half the day but we still got to snorkel with a manatee at the very first stop and the next stop we saw 8 including a new born. We went in August when the manatees are harder to find so we were prepared not... More

We were a family of 4 joined on the boat by another couple. This was an amazing day - captain Joe must have X-ray vision - if there was a manatee anywhere in crystal river - he'd find it. We found three and managed to "float" with two of them. In summer the water's cloudy but it was still a... More

Our family booked this manatee dive. The pictures on the internet are during winter when the water is clear and there are more animals, so don't come expecting to see more than one or two during the summer in sort-of murky water. There are springs in the lake area, so some spots are clear. We saw animals and it was... More

We had an amazing time snorkeling with the manatees. Joe did a great job educating us about the manatee and looking for them to snorkel with. I enjoyed the small group on the boat it made it more personable. Joe answered many questions and our family was able to spend quality time with a mom and baby manatee. We have... More

Captain Joe is the one to give you the awesome experience to dive with mannatees, even in summer when there is not so much mannatees around. He knows were to find them, he knows how to dive with them and he knows so much things about them... Positive thing about Fun 2 dive is that he cares about mannatees and... More
