Bird's Underwater, Crystal River

#3 of 15 in Adventure in Crystal River
Scuba / Snorkeling · Eco Tour
Bird's Underwater is owned and operated by Captains Bill "Bird" and Diane Oestreich. We have been operating as guides in Crystal River since 1989. We offer personal attention, supervision and education to our customers.

Our dive center provides scuba certification, guided dives, manatee snorkel tours, scalloping, kayak and SUP rentals, dive gear to buy or rent, along with a plentiful gift shop.

We love the manatees and have learned to balance your desire to see them with a respect for the animal, the laws and the local environment.

Our tours are intended to be educational, as well as enjoyable. We are devoted to educating the public about the plight of the manatees and helping to protect the manatees from boat propellers and other man made hazards.

Bird's Underwater is a proud sponsor of the Manatee Fund under the guidance of the Friends of the Chassohowitzka Wildlife Refuge. Please visit their website and consider a donation to our local manatees. We are also a member of META (Manatee Eco Tourism Association). Free manatee literature is available upon request.
