I went on a super cold day, so there were tons of manatees out and about and maybe 8 or 10 people in the water. It was overcast, so the water wasn't as clear, but still had plenty of one on one with several manatees....More
Awesome trip with Jason and Ryan. My 70 year old parents had an absolute blast being so close to these gentle giants. Jason and Ryan are so knowledgeable and really made my parents feel so well taken care of. My 16yo was also fascinated with...More
I chose Fun 2 Dive because of their excellent web-site. Reservations were made online. We were greeted in their quaint historical headquarters, given instructions and suited up for our swim. Our guide, Katlyn and our Captain, Hunter provided an excellent experience. We felt prepared, safe...More
Travelled from Ireland to swim with the manatees (something we had been planning for a couple of years) and it didn't disappoint. Captain Peter and Katlyn were amazing, couldn't have asked for anything more!already looking forward to another visit!!!
Snorkeling with the Manatees with Fun2Dive was the most amazing and magic thing to do during our USA Trip. If you want to experience an unforgettable day, visit Fun2Dive.
Even though the water in Magnolia Bay was cloudy, and therefore the pictures were not as...More
I was in Ocala for the weekend and didn't realize how close Crystal River was, so I decided to book a tour. It started out a very rainy morning but by 10 o'clock it had cleared up and we were good to go.
My 15-year-old twin daughters and I went in search of manatees yesterday with Stephanie & Pete from Fun2Dive, and boy did we find them! Stephanie led us right up to several manatees, literally nose to nose, coaching us on how to interact with these amazing...More
Well I have to say this experience was worth the over three hour commute from Port St Lucie. Myself and my sister had a private tour of the manatees habitat and snorkeled with them up close and personal. Absolutely amazing and beautiful creatures. Our captain...More
Today my husband and I had the pleasure of introducing our son and his fiancé to the joys of swimming with manatees. They had previously kayaked Crystal River, but had seen only 1 manatee, and that one from a distance. Today's experience with Fun 2...More

You are not required to be in the water if you do not wish to be. You are welcome to get back on the boat at any time. The water depths average 5-8 feet deep and can be as deep as 20 feet depending on where the manatees on on your particular tour date and time. It is important that you can float quietly on the surface of the water as splashing, loud noises, dangling kicking legs can all scare the manatees away. The full wetsuits that we provide to you will give you buoyancy and we also provide swim noodles for additional floatation. This is generally enough for those who are comfortable in the water. On the tour we are basically just floating with the manatees and not doing any strenuous swimming. We just float quietly and allow the manatees to come to us. If you have additional questions or concerns feel free to email me directly, you can use the contact form found on our website. Thank you, Angela.

Absolutely! We took two tours: scalloping and swimming with the manatees. Each and every Fun2Dive guide was very knowledgeable and sensitive to not only the manatees but also the entire ecosystem in the surrounding Crystal River area. I highly recommend booking a tour with Fun2Dive.
