Fun 2 Dive Manatee Tour Center is a professional Manatee Eco-tour guide...

Fun 2 Dive Manatee Tour Center is a professional Manatee Eco-tour guide service that has been guiding snorkelers into the Crystal River National Wildlife refuge since 1995. We offer daily trips to swim and snorkel with the manatees in beautiful Crystal River, FL. All gear is included in prices and all tours are semi private with 6 guests maximum per boat.

We are located just outside of the Hunter's Spring Park in the heart of historic Crystal River, FL.

Our manatee snorkeling encounters are 3 hour trips limited to a very small group of only 6 people maximum. This is a great adventure that is suitable for the whole family. Children 3 years old and up are welcome as long as they are comfortable in the water and are able to float quietly.

Our tours are all-inclusive, no hidden fees or additional charges for snorkeling gear rental, parking, etc. Its all included!. Picture packages are available on every tour.

Thanks for looking!

From beginning to end Fun 2 Dive made this one very memorable time! They were clear while booking on what to expect and what to bring. When we got there we were warmly greeted. The equipment and building was clean and decorated nicely. We watched a quick manatee safety video and got questions out of the way. Our guide Crystal... More

Fantastic trip - Captain Rick and guide Shellie were brilliant - we really couldn't have asked for more. Booked and paid for from London UK, before our trip and having done a similar trip around 9 years ago in Crystal River, I was a little nervous of going to a smaller, lesser known, business. I shouldn't have worried! We arrived... More

Lot better than expected! We were just us two on the tour so it was like a private tour and we had Shellie and Rick just for ourselves. They found the manatees although it has not been the ideal time for finding and watching manatees - we had plenty of time to enjoy swimming and snorkeling with the manatees. Thanks... More

Today I returned to swim with manatees with Fun 2 Dive for the second time. Crystal was our swim guide and Captain Laura guided us to the manatees. It was a truly magical experience which will stay with me forever. Having the privilege to visit these graceful creatures in their home was just 'the best' Both Crystal and Captain Laura... More

We were the only ones on our boat (although they only take 6 max. anyway). We saw other boats with 12 or more. If you want a personal trip to see the Manatees this is the company to go with! Even though we were not in the prime time of winter Captain Laura and swim guide Tara did an amazing... More

What a great experience!! There were 3 in our group for the Luxury Adventure with Crystal and Paul. They found manatees and we enjoyed our up close & personal adventure! There was plenty of time to swim around the manatees as well as photograph these lovable creatures. Crystal did an excellent job of photographing our interactions with the manatees. I... More

I'm not sure 5 stars really give Fun 2 Dive justice, the whole experience was perfect. Our captain Rick and our guide Shellie were brilliant, friendly and knowledgeable. One of our party didn't want to swim and Rick really made an effort to keep her entertained throughout the trip. I never felt rushed and always had plenty of time to... More

Fun 2 Dive provided everything needed for our snorkeling with the manatees experience: wet suits, snorkels and bottled water for us to drink. Our Captain Paul and our eco-educator Shellie did an amazing job guiding our group of five. They were informative, friendly and genuinely care about the manatees. We set out mid-morning on the last day in April. Capt.... More

A big thank you to Capt. Rick and Shelly for making our snorkelling with manatees experience so enjoyable for my daughter and I. As someone who had never snorkelled before, they made me feel very comfortable and were so friendly. Shelly was in the water with us the entire time. I would recommend Fun 2 Dive for an unforgettable experience.... More
