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!

Highly recommend Capt. Bill. He is professional, considerate, educational. He was clear on giving us all the regulations to protect the endangered Manatees. It was fortunate for us that it was a cold day in January. Many cancelled due to the cold. There were less people and so many manatees. I was thankful we had Capt. Bill. He gave guidance... More

We got the opportunity to experience the love and joy of having the Gentle Giants of the Manatee world surround us with Love! Capt. Bill Wilson took us on an Educational and Living Expedition into the World of Manatee's! Such a Great adventure to be educated and allowed to introduce yourself up close and personal to the lives of Manatees.... More

I came all the way from Buffalo, New York to see my favorite animals in action and I'm so glad I chose this tour company to lead the way! Captain Joe was a great guide and he was very knowledgeable on all things manatees. I hope that I can come back and do this again some day. Worth every penny!!!

We went on the tour in September which is not the greatest time of the year to go as the water is too warm at sea for the Manatees. However we had an amazing day with Capt joe who truly knows what he is doing. We managed to see a few Manatees during our trip, we also swam in the... More

We had booked a private tour in Crystal River to swim with the manatees. We were driving 6 hours and spending the night before the tour in a hotel nearby. Captain Joe called the day ahead and explained due to the unusually warm weather, there were very few manatees. He explained there were tons of boats full of people all... More

We were with Captain Bill and he was awesome! We had the best time, he made everything perfect for us. We loved swimming with manatees! Captain Bill made sure we knew how to behave while in water. It was my first time snorkeling and he taught me well. He knows so much about the nature and is willing to share... More

If you want to see manatees and have a great relaxing day on the water, look no further. Captain Joe does an excellent job of finding the manatees and making sure you AND the manatees have a great experience. The manatees flock to this area for the warm spring waters as the weather turns colder. Even though it has been... More

Our family had the opportunity to take the manatee tour with Captain Joe and we couldn't have had a better experience. We were lucky enough to have a private tour of four people. Captain Joe was excellent at helping us find the manatees, and taught us how to approach them in a respectful manner. We had a very individual tour... More

This was something that had been on my bucket list for quite some time. What an amazing trip! Captain Bill was so knowledgeable! He didn't rush the trip and he didn't pile in on every other boat that was surrounding a manatee. He was very patient and knew where to look. We were able to see and swim with 2... More
