Fun 2 Dive / Capt Joe is a Professional Eco-tour guide service that has been guiding customers for the past 32 years. We also offers Scuba / Snorkeling tours and Scuba training through out Florida.

For a true Florida Eco-Adventure and my favorite, our manatee snorkeling trip which is offered as a full day tour, with a very small group up to 6 people. This is great for the whole family 4 years an up, is all-inclusive. Since we run this as a Eco-Tour Capt Joe is also a Florida Naturalist from the University of Florida / IFAS

We also teach full scuba certification, and many specialty classes from top rated Instructors.

Our office is centrally located in Sanford Florida. To meet at the shop reservations are required, since we're the guides and do not hire outside help. The Sanford locates is where we conduct all scuba diver training, snorkeling and swimming lessons.

Our Manatee Tours meet at our boat which is easier for most people that visit Orlando. Our other tours, range from the Orlando area and West Palm Beach all the way to Key Largo. Depending on which tour you decide to take. We meet most people at the boat for these tours. Most of our trips are with in 1.5 hours of Orlando. If you have any questions please feel free to call or email.

Thanks for looking!

Finished our week long vacation with a swim with the manatees and absolutely loved it! We were a little concerned that we would not see some since Aug is an off season month that is typically very low in numbers for the manatees; however, we were not disappointed at all. There were about 6 to 8 manatees in the area... More

Brilliant! What a fantastic day out. We weren't sure what to expect when we went out for the day with Captain Joe but it turned out to be one of the best days of our holiday in Florida. Despite the fact that this was the off-season for manatee watching we had an incredible experience getting two hours in the water... More

After today's tour with Cpt. Joe, I can honestly say I'd never book with anyone else. He was extremely knowledgable and made our experience top notch! What an amazing adventure with a truly great man. The group is only booked with a small number of people, allowing for easy access to the manatees and having Cpt. Joe assist you at... More

It is a great experience to snorkel with the creatures of this planet. Just to swim with these gentle giants is a wonder of nature.

My family and I had a wonderful trip with Captain Joe on May 16, 2016! He provided us with great information and great communication leading up to the trip. No time constraint on the trip was great because it meant Captain Joe could really take us around, give us a tour of the river, and find the perfect manatees for... More

We had an extraordinary time. Captain Joe was terrific! We swam with roughly 15 manatees thanks to Captain Joe's keen eye! In addition to the thrill of passive observation we learned so much! We highly recommend this for a quality tour and a once in a lifetime experience.

Could not commit to a reservation, due to uncertain travel plans. Called Captain Bill Wilson (based on Trip Advisor reviews) the night before and caught two spots on the next morning's boat in the off season, mid week. With a small group of 5 snorkelers, Bill worked his tail off showing everyone a good time on the water, and finding... More

This is a great company! They found us manatees even though it is not the "peak" time. They really respect the environment and the manatees unlike some of the other tours out there. The captains are nice, knowledgeable and a lot of fun. Would definitely book with them again!

Loads to say, but in brief: Capt Joe is an ecologist & very knowledgeable & will find the manatees if they are there to be found. He will ask you to view a video - You have to obey the rules & laws in place to protect the manatees - these are common sense, but you'd be amazed how many... More

Fun2Dive provides (if needed) wet-suits and snorkel gear. Capt. Joe was fun and interesting taking the time to explain the area, the manatees, local laws we needed to follow, and what we were about to see. We had a nice boat ride to the Three Sisters Springs area and all I can say is "WOW"! I was stunned by how... More
