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

Capt. Joe is a great guide! He takes small groups, spends the whole day on the water and gets right in the water to help locate the manatees. He is also very knowledgeable and funny! Capt. Joe makes sure you get the best experience possible and also ensures that the manatees and their habitat are being respected. I hope we... More

We did this Manatee/Snorkel tour in the off season (July). There are not as many manatees to see during this time. Capt Joe was in the water and he made sure we saw them. The water was very murky and I don't think I would have been able to find one if Capt Joe had not gotten into the water... More

Captain Joe is personable, responsive, and cares that his clients have a good experience in swimming with the manatees. My family and I had a terrific experience on Monday July 7, 2014. Despite the fewer numbers of manatees in the Crystal River during July, we saw 5 manatees up close and dove with 2--unbelievable sightings for sustained periods. Capt Joe... More

Captain joe was an excellent guide. The tour lasted as long as the manatees were hanging around. My son and I had an excellent experience. I have already recommended this trip to my family.

Captain Joe knows his stuff. He found manatees right away, anchored the boat and got in the water with us to give direction. He does bark a bit - but only to keep you from yelling and otherwise scaring these skittish animals away. They are gentle creatures, but be prepared for the curious baby to swim right up to you...

Swimming with wild manatees has been on my bucket list for a long time, and for my 30th birthday my husband got me an outing with Captain Joe! Joe scouted out THE BEST location to get up close with the manatees, and made sure we weren't crowded by other groups. We saw 8 manatees, including a very friendly baby who... More

This was truly an amazing experience and Captain Joe was fabulous!! Not only was he knowledgeable and funny, but you could also see how much he truly cared about the manatees. Before heading off, Captain Joe went over rules and regulations thoroughly, making sure that we all understood what he was saying and the reasons for the safety measures. Afterwards,... More

This was an amazing day for our family. Everyone loved the tour with Capt Joe. He explained so much and made the day so fun. He only takes small groups, unlike so many other tours. This was our second time with Fun 2 Dive and we were not disappointed. We saw manatees and it was an unforgettable day. Everyone had... More

We booked with Captain Joe after reading lots of excellent feedback on this and other forums - and we weren't disappointed. I think the thing that stands out for me is that you are in a small group, and therefore the tour is very much tailored to you and what you want. It was just our family, with two young... More
