Definitely Worth it.

On a visit to the greater St. Pete area over Xmas break, it was recommended that we try snorkeling with the manatees as an activity. It proved to be a great suggestion. We... read more

We were so excited about this trip and as we had our two granddaughters with us wanted it to be a special day. Although they had a great day as one of them briefly touched a manatee (although our introduction video clearly said not to our captain encouraged it) our day was marred by Captain Joe constantly yelling at us....

We have participated in other manatee tours and Adventure tours was not the best. You meet at their location in a mall. It's a bit confusing where you are supposed to go to in the mall, especially if you have an earlier tour. The staff are all friendly. After you watch a video at the mall and change into your...

We bought a groupon for swimming with the manatees and really enjoyed the experience. Captain Joe made sure we all got to see manatees and his love for what he does was obvious. It was Manatee festival weekend and Captain Joe got us away from the crowds and gave each of us on the boat (6 total) the opportunity to... More

Bought Groupons for 4 @ 100.00 total. It was the most exciting thing. We all just loved it. Our Captain Joe was very patient and informative of what we had to do. There were 6 on our boat and only 2 had snorkled before. We spent a lot of time in the water with the manatees, swimming and giving them... More

My husband surprised me with this for my birthday so I can't speak on the reservation and money part of this business. We went in mid November and our Captain (Joe) was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. This was one of the best experiences of my life!! Captain Joe may come off a little rough around the edges at first but... More

Did this for my wife for her 30th bday. She was sooooo excited for it! Amazing gift. First time seeing manatees. Dave was soo amazing on the phone and helped us when other tours turned me down for Groupon coupons. Even though Adventure diving Groupon is for certain days, Dave was able to help us out with a semi-private tour.... More

We went knowing it was off-season, but the only time we had to do the trip. We are a family of snorkelers/scuba divers and even with our 11 and 13 year old, experienced in the water and with creatures. We had a Groupon and our own gear as we always travel with it. It was a bit of a mess... More

ASSUMING THIS IS THE SAME PLACE WE WENT (address doesn't match), we were soooo disappointed. We had purchased Groupons for me and the kids, which included swim fins (that we were told were unnecessary). Water was very murky, and no amount of attempting to move in water by dog paddling (with wet suits but no fins) seemed to get us... More

Obviously swimming with manatees will be great with any company. My boyfriend and I found this group through Groupon. We were staying in Daytona Beach, so it was a good 2.5 hour drive to Adventure Diving...seemed worth it. We drove to the location listed on their website....waited several minutes and called multiple times...only to find out they moved to a... More
