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.

Our group reserved a Manatee Snorkel Trip. We arrived, did the necessary paperwork, and those of us who were renting wet suits and/or snorkeling equipment were fitted. 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

These creeps have no trouble stealing money! I cancelled a trip 7 days prior to departure and they charged my credit card $40. 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

The American Pro Diving Center is the worst place in Central Florida to get scuba certified. The individual instructors are very competent and helpful but the business ethics of the company itself are shady. Be sure to keep your money, wallet, credit cards in your car because the employees will tell you that you have to buy all kinds of... More

Enjoyed a great dive at Catfish Hotel. American Pro Dives provided a very polite and knowledgable guide for the trip. The entry was a little intimidating, duck grass covering surface, but once under the water, the views were great.

American Pro Diving Center made our Memorial Day weekend! About a month out, they helped me book a plan that would get us diving as many times as possible in two days, with a snorkeling trip on the third day before we flew back home. We did the Crystal River drift dive Saturday afternoon with Mariah, followed by the Crystal... More

If you're considering where to become certified in scuba then you have definitely found the place! The staff here is very friendly and extremely knowledgeable. Our instructor, Andrew, was amazing! Super knowledgeable, very patient, and a lot of fun! All 4 of the open water dives were in Rainbow River, a nearly crystal clear natural spring. Andrew did an excellent... More
