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.

Given the time of year I was not optimistic of seeing the Manatees but within 10 minutes on the boat we saw several and soon spent a pleasurable hour or so snorkelling with a whole host of manatees, including at least one very quizzical and confident baby that kept coming to watch us. It was a truly amazing experience that... More

We did our open water class in March 2016. We had six in the class. Dive instructor Andrew was very good and knowledgable. Me and my wife liked him so much we went back in June 2016 and took our advanced open water classes with him. He answered any and all questions we had. Really felt confident in the water... More

At this time, they charge $58 for the trip and equipment rental. Had some time to wait before our Dive Master came to talk to us about what to expect, and showed a... More

I have never heard of any business ever doing this. 24 hours I could understand. But I had contacted them a FULL week from the appointment date and they still refused to refund my money. I was...

My sister and I went on this swimming with the manatees tour. They don't guarantee that you will see/swim with manatees, but we definitely did! The manatees were so cute and there was a very playful baby that twirled when you pet him. Even though it was pretty cold (January), it was doable with the wet suits (we used a... More
