From the minute we walked in Fun 2 Dive, we were warmly greeted, watched a short video about engaging with the manatees and were given wetsuits and snorkel equipment, which was all included in the price.
So much fun.. we also went snorkeling in Three Sisters which was GORGEOUS.. Thank you Captain Rick and Tara.. you made the morning wonderful!

Location was super easy to find, right off HWY 19 - within a comfortable and enjoyable boat ride to several canals and springs to find manatees and enjoy snorkeling.
Captain Steve and dive master (is that term used for non-scuba dives?) Robbie were wonderful- the perfect balance of knowledge, warmth, and humor.

This year, our boat captains were Lance & Jason, Thaisy & Misty, Dustin & Memphis, Steve & Bryan, Ed & Bob, and our snorkel instructor was Captain John.
However, the Rainbow River snorkeling was absolutely amazing - crystal-clear water, beautiful fish and turtles, diving birds, deep springs coming from underwater caverns, and waving grasses.

Company provides wet suit, goggles and snorkel, snacks and drinks.They were simply the best: patient, knowledgeable, excellent sighting skills and teaching about the area and inhabitants.
We drove to a boat and set sail into manatee territory equipped with noddles, wet suits, snorkel gear and hot chocolate.

Capt Tim runs a fun safe and great manatee snorkel adventure - his folks are super friendly and helpful - they smoothly guide you to the best places to see and enjoy these gentle giants.
The trip was great value for what we got, they provided wet suits (older suits, but who cares when the price is great), snorkel gear, bottled water, and hot chocolate.

From the minute you get there you know you are about to experience something special.The ride to the manatee snorkel is well worth the price alone, Great value;, better yet great fun!
We travelled a short distance upriver in a pontoon boat, adjusted our scuba masks (scuba diving is prohibited near manatees, as the bubbles disturb them), and slowly lowered ourselves down the boat's ladder.
