I became a Padi certified scuba diver. IT WAS ALITTLE TOUGH being I am 65 yrs old. but I made it. THE DIVING WAS TREMENDOUS. We were able to do alittle drift diving, that was alot of fun. We looked for things buried in the sand. Checked out some underwater caves. Swam with bass bluegill pickerill and gar. it was fun

I loved it! It was the reason i went to florida. Im so happy i did it. Know 1st that any/all manatee swims are touristy. Know 2nd that the captain of the boat is in charge of your safety, manatee safety, and the safety of all passangers that dont listen to instructions whatsoever. That being said, i would strongly recommend having your manatee swim with American Pro Dive Center. Manatee safety is paramount. Everything you need is provided. Staff are friendly and knowledgeable. Everything from booking, phones, emails, suiting up, in the water, etc. Perfect for a single person looking for a spiritual experience. Perfect for a family looking for an activity all ages can do. With American Pro Dive Center you will be taken care of throughout your experience.

Been diving with American Pro for several years--they are a very professional operation; knowledgable, courteous, personable and generally extremely helpful. One of the divers had an equipment malfunction (fin strap) and the boat captain provided her with a spare part. We dove with John and Cody, and they were incredibly fun to be with--Cody showed me areas of the river I hadn't seen before. This is the dive center you absolutely must connect with, if you're doing any snorkeling or diving in Central Florida!

Informative guides. Overall good trip. However, felt there were too many people to maximize the experience. Everyone crowded in to see the manatee. All the motion made the water cloudy. Would do it again only if there were 10 or less people
