What to expect
Starting at American Pro Diving Center in Crystal River, snorkelers and divers check-in and try on gear. After a brief orientation, follow the guide through a neighboring small town to a beautiful wooded river just north of the shop. Loading the gear at the docks is made easy and the boat ride view is unbelievable. Traveling up the river you may see several types of fish, turtles and even the occasional otter. Learning history about the Rainbow River from your captain adds interest to the boat ride. Once in the water the boat drifts with the group so boat riders can also observe all that Rainbow River has to offer. Back on board the boat there is a short cruise back to the docks to unload the gear and swap dive stories.

Our visit was absolutely incredible! Definitely worth every moment and had an amazing time with the tour guides!
Experience was 5/5. Steve and Jessica were amazing tour guides and made the whole experience wonderful. Very enlightening and enthusiastic, with the help of their knowledge and teachings throughout the whole time. Would definitely go again with these two!

We really enjoyed "drift snorkeling" or letting the current take us down the River. Captains Tom and John were great by giving us good direction.

Great dive with a great company
May 2021 • Friends
As a master diver I have dived the world over and have hundreds of dives under my belt. American Pro Divers runs a highly professional and yet customer friendly organization. Our drift dive down the Rainbow River was easy, fun and very relaxing - Vis was at least 150 feet and the current mild. Our dive master, Austin, had a rare and wonderful mix of experience and control to give the dive a high safety margin, and yet knew how to provide sufficient flexibility for individual divers to have a unique and fun time. The entire experience was very well managed and led from the beginning. Austin's dive briefing was thorough and quite informative. The company allowed the 2 people in our group who rented gear to simply leave it with Austin so we could go directly to our hotel - saved us an hour. Highly recommend this company for dive and snorkle trips.

Had a good time with Austin
The dive briefing was brief as Austin drove the boat to our get off point. We had to remember which side of the river to be on at certain points. Not easy to do. Not very deep and not much to see. Got some bottom time in, but that was it. Typical dive prices, but boring. Plus we had to pay $15 per person to the park. Ouch!

Snorkeling the Springs
Mar 2021 • Family
Beautiful snorkeling! Great captain! Plenty of free time to explore the springs. Crystal clear water.
Very friendly staff. Was just surprised by how expensive all the equipment rentals added up to be. Was taken by surprise, so plan accordingly... wound up being a very expensive afternoon. A great snorkeling adventure!

Great Experience on the Rainbow River with American Pro Diving Center
Dec 2020
My 16 year old son and I went an the afternoon scuba trip to the Rainbow River on December 29th and had an excellent experience. The staff at American Pro Dive Center were extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Although we brought most of our own dive gear, we rented wetsuits, weights, and tanks. The quality of the rental gear was very good. Captain Tom launched the pontoon boat from KP Hole Park.
On our short boat ride upriver to the drop off point, Captain Tom briefed us on the dive, pointed out underwater features, and provided navigational tips to maximize the dive experience. Based on his instruction, we were able to see most attractions including small caverns, boils, and popcorn springs. We also saw turtles and lots of fish including bass, brim, and gar. The visibility was excellent and the current was gentle. The dive lasted about an hour and maximum depth was about 20 ft. This is a fun, easy dive, that will be enjoyed by beginners and advanced divers alike.

If you snorkel and there are scuba divers on your boat, be aware.
Dec 2020
I want to preface this by saying that I did contact the company by email and they have no responded. We also took the morning manatee snorkel and that was good.

I'm not really happy with how we(snorkelers) were treated vs. how the scuba divers were treated. On two occasions, Austin yelled at us to SLOW DOWN. How are we supposed to slow down when the current was taking us down the river? The scuba group were all in one area for short periods of time. I don't think its fair to us, the snorkelers to be made to stop and stand and wait for the scuba divers (it was really cold outside) . I know we paid less than the scuba people, but everyone should be treated equally. The water/air was cold and it was uncomfortable to stand around and wait for the scuba divers to catch up with us.

PADI Open Water Certification
Nov 2020
My 14 year old son and I recently did our PADI Open Water Certification with AmPro. It was a life-changing experience. At times both my son and I struggled with a skill, but with the help of our instructor, John, we were able to work through the struggle and complete the skill. After we did our certification, we did 3 dives with the shop: Blue Grotto, Devils Den, and Rainbow River. All experiences were excellent. We also purchased equipment from the shop and the staff were all super helpful- Even to the point of letting me try their own flippers!

The crew at AmPro wanted nothing more that for us to have a fun, successful dive experience. They laid the foundation for many more adventures. Thank You!
