American Pro Diving Center offers guided Crystal River dive and snorkel...

American Pro Diving Center offers guided Crystal River dive and snorkel Manatee tours for over 18 years in florida. Our snorkel with manatee tours are guided by in water professional divemasters and is just one of the reasons we received many awards from state and local educational systems as well as the National Geographic Dive Center Award from PADI and National Geographic. Experience manatee tours with all the comforts that a five star facility has to offer in Crystal River, Florida.Our trips are successful because the dive masters educate on the manatee and the manners of being in their environment while on the manatee snorkel tours. The guides enter the water with you so that both you and the Manatees have a safe and enjoyable time even if you are new to snorkeling. This can be the experience of a lifetime on our Crystal River manatee snorkel.

Went today and the group was very know and friendly. We didn't have to boat far before we were swimming with manatees. We were warned that there might not be many because of the warm weather but we found a group and they were very sociable. Had a great time!

Fantastic trip! Phil, our Captain, was super friendly and extremely knowledgeable regarding the Manatees. This was my daughter's number 1 request when we came down here and the look on her face as she got out of the water was priceless, truly an experience of a lifetime. The interaction with these creatures was amazing. The cost was very reasonable and... More

We got there and got into our wet suits. We didn't have to go far to see manatees. We got in the water, and over to the manatees. These creatures were some curious and friendly that we got to interact with them. I would go early as during the day they do like to rest. Expect this to take 3... More

The shop took care of everything for us. We just had to suit up and jump into the river. Very fun and they took safety seriously.

We were a large group in town for several trips with American Pro. Captain Mike was our tour guide, Dive Master and boat captain. The trips were incredible. We experienced dozens of manatees and received amazing service. The shop is well stocked with items and the staff were very helpful.

I have used the services of American Pro Diving Center at least 3 times in the last few years and have enjoyed great service, so I recommended this place to my friends for a manatee snorkel and a cavern dive. While we only saw one manatee due to weather, we did get to snorkel among lots of fish. Dive in... More

Had a marvelous time with our knowledgeable guide and the manatees. Our guide gave us interesting information and schooled us on appropriate behavior around these marvelous creatures. The icing on the cake was the group we toured with: by the time we headed back, it felt like we were lifelong friends. Highly recommend American Pro Diving.

Our guide was so wonderful taking us on a second tour when we didn't see any manatees on the first tour.

The American Pro Diving staff are all really friendly and very helpful, making you feel welcome and well prepared for your manatee tour. The shop is well stocked and I bought a couple of rainbow manatees for my kids. The tour was great, water was clearish and an ok temperature so got to see a few manatees. I was well... More

We took a boat tour of the Crystal River at Thanksgiving when we had family in town from Maryland. We discussed swimming with the Manatees and one of our sons purchased the package for us for Christmas! We've lived in FL for almost 2 years and this by far was the most incredible experience we've enjoyed since living here! The... More
