Encounter the gentle manatees with American Pro Diving Center, where you're guided by professional divers. Owing to distinct microclimate of the river, with a number of underwater springs, the site is a year-round habitat of these animals. You'll snorkel with an instructor to see manatees and interact with them in a safe and fun way near the surface. Your "dive" (even though the snorkel adventure doesn't take you too deep) will be caught on film for you. No diving or swimming experience is required, and the tours are suitable for all ages. Snorkeling gear can be rented if you don't have your own. Put American Pro Diving Center at the forefront of your travel plans using our Crystal River day trip planning app .

Totally recommend. Had back to back great days with Capt Martin leading the way. We did the drift dive at Rainbow, snorkeled with manatees, and check out dives with a group of new divers. They made you feel comfortable on the boat and totally encouraged a good time. Not to mention they know their stuff when it comes to the local environment and the equipment to best experience it.
We took to tours with this group 1) swimming with the Manatee and 2) the Rainbow River drift dive. We enjoyed them both. The entire staff is very professional and took pride in what they do and was very responsible about the environment. I would definitely b recommend this outfit for anyone.
