Amazing experience swimming with the Manatee with Dani as our guide and Captain Steve on the boat. Great Family adventure (teens to seniors) and have now added the Manatee to the amazing animals we have now been able to swim with. Dani was amazing working with everyone in our family to get those who were not as confident being in the water comfortable and then awesome photos of everyone with the Manatee. We were graced with 3 friendly adults and 2 very playful youngsters. Dani made sure to get photos of all the different Manatee as well as everyone in our group had great photos with the Manatee. Great learning experience and knowledge by Dani and Steve to educate us on Manatee and Crystal River. Would highly recommend a trip with Dani and Steve from Fun 2 Dive and would do this trip again.

We had an amazing experience snorkeling with the manatee! I was with 2 of my sons, my brother, and his best friend. Danni and Steve did a great job helping my sons relax. They were a bit nervous getting in the water thinking there may be alligators. It was so neat just watching the manatee feed off the sea grass and gently come up for air. I definitely plan to be back in the winter when it's not so hot in Florida.

Wonderful experience! Snorkeling with Manatees was an exciting experience. The manatees are so gentle and adorable to watch eat and swim. I loved this trip!
We went with Dani and Ryan.

We went on a private tour with Danni and Ryan. They were both really great, very knowledgable about the manatees and the area around. We sailed around for a bit then spotted one manatee so we went into the water and swam along side it. We were in the water for about 1,5 hours and met two fullgrown manatees that were really curious and made contact with us, they were really friendly and cute. This was an unforgettable experience and Danni took alot of great pictures for us that we really appreciated. Highly recommend this tour and Danni and Ryan 👌

Went on a tour with capt. Ryan and Dani and they were amazing!! Friendly, approachable and very knowledgable.

We were very lucky to quickly find a manatee that was willing to allow us to swim around it. The manatee swam, played and rolled near us for a very long time. And just before the end of the tour another one showed up to frolic around us. The most amazing experience I have ever had on a tour!!!!!!

If you want to request a specific guide go with Dani and Ryan. Deffinitly a 5 star trip.

After booking your tour you are given a wetsuit mask and snorkel and driven a few minutes up the road. Once there you travel for about 15 mins on a boat and then swim for over 2 hours with manatees. There were 3 manatees on our visit and we just swam near them for the entire time. As long as you don’t touch them but watch them as they feed or snooze on the bottom and come up for air.
The visit was made special by Robin and Garrett who ensured we were within close proximity throughout. Worth every cent

We had so much fun. Jessica and Ryan were awesome guides and got us on manatee within minutes of beginning the tour. We got so up close with the manatees! It was an amazing experience. Jessica was very knowledgeable about the manatees and the area. They made us feel very comfortable about swimming with these gentle goats and kept us laughing. Jessica took amazing pictures underwater. We would definitely go back and ask for them as guides.
