Fun 2 Dive is a professional Eco-tour guide service that has been guiding customers for the past 32 years. We offer daily trips to swim and snorkel with the manatees in beautiful Crystal River, FL.

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

For a true Florida Eco-Adventure and my favorite, our manatee snorkeling trip which is offered as a 4 hour tour, with a very small group up to 6 people. This is a great adventure that is suitable for the whole family. Children 4 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.

Thanks for looking!

People who book a tour to snorchel with the Manatees defintely do so, because they care for them. So does Captain Joe! We booked a tour with him in August, and Captain Joe spotted as many as about 10 of them for us - and that in August, which is low season with only a few of these marvelous animals... More

Captain Joe is just a fun person. He took all the time to help the kids get the best experience. I have told everyone " this is the go to person". I have been with all types of guides, and he is one of the tops. The trip is over the moon, and back.

By sheer serendipity i selected Captain Joe to make my wife's long-held desire to swim with the manatees come true... and so he did! Even in the summer 'off-season' we have found a pair of manatees within 30 minutes and they played with us for an hour. Captain Joe is experienced and great captain who genuinely enjoys his job and... More

Capt Joe ROCKS! He gave us personalized and personable service. He treated my family of three to an all day, fun-filled manatee adventure. He limits the number of people on his boat to ensure his guests have the opportunity to experience an up close and personal journey with the manatees without harassing the animals, thus allowing us to spend hours...

Fun 2 Dive is the most experienced manatee tour operation on the water. Capt Joe's top goal was for us to have meaningful and respectful encounters with the manatees. He was obviously experienced at knowing where the manatees would be, spotting them and then advising us how to quickly and quietly get up close and personal with the gentle animals... More

Yet again, Joe delivers... Such a great day even in the down season... Only about 30 mins into the tour we get to be in the water alone with 2 manatees.. Each of us spending about an hour just chilling with the grass eating dudes as they munch their way through their morning feed.. The water wasn't the best but... More

My husband and I wanted to to see manatees, but having biology and ecology degrees we wanted an ethical tour and we got it. Captain Bill was great! He was honest when we called to make the appointment that we would see manatees, but did not know if they would interact with us. Did not matter to us as we... More

We had an amazing time with Captain Joe and within minutes (literally) of getting to our first stop there were 5 manatees. Whole family got to see them!! We got some awesome video of these magnificent animals. We highly recommend taking time to do this as this was one of the highlights of our vacation. Captain Joe is very knowledgeable... More
