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

Capt Joe makes this a trip one you will never forget. He is so knowledgeable of the area and manatees. His personality is witty and funny which is a great bonus! Everyone should experience this adventure. Book early though this is a popular adventure.

What a thrilling memorable trip to Florida! Captain Joseph Detrick of Fun2Dive was fun, professional, and very knowledgeable about the area and where to find the manatees. He took us to a cove that had a multitude of manatees - older, huge manatees, mating adults, and babies! He was the only tour out there that provided us with boots to... More

Although Captain Joe was very sick, he made the trip out to take us on a one of a kind trip to visit with the manatees!! Captain Joe taught us a lot about the ecosystem of Crystal River,... More

Our Fun 2 Dive manatee tour and snorkeling with the manatees was amazing, and thanks to Captain Joe for the eco-tour information he shared along the way! Being an endangered species, I encourage you all to stick to the rules to help protect these amazing creatures. We were on an early December trip, so weather was cooler than most people... More

The experience with the manatees is simply amazing! Capt. Joseph is very attentive and patient. I strongly recommend this attraction and certainly i'll return. Note: The water is very cold, but worth.

They are endangered, they are gentle, they are wild, they are surprisingly big and if they choose to be with you they are amazing. Captain Joe is very big on the rules and I can see why but the manatees play by a different set of rules. It is out of this world when you are simply floating there and... More

Wow, what a day we had with Captain Joe. We arrived at Crystal River at 9:30 to be briefed by Joe on what to expect and what was expected of us. Our family of five were the only ones on the boat. We were supplied with wetsuits although as the water was no too cold we didn’t bother and swam... More

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
