Since 1973, Adventure Diving has transformed land walkers into underwater explorers with dives and scuba lessons. Its location in the Crystal River puts adventurers on the doorstep of the "Manatee Capital of the World," and regular snorkeling trips lead guests into the crystal-clear waters for a chance to glimpse the adorable creatures. Adventure Diving's scuba-certification courses combine online learning and practical lessons to enable solo excursions. A full slate of above-water activities keep feet dry and collectable water wings in their original packaging, allowing visitors to soak in sunset cruises, airboat rides, horseback adventures, and helicopter tours.
Manatees, we got to see some, swim with some and I managed to pet three of them! We also enjoyed a nice tour around the springs areas as wellWilliam O, TripAdvisor, 6/29/12

“We accidentally came on the Saturday before our scheduled tour by mistake & the day was fully booked. We drove 3 hrs & were pretty bummed that we weren't going to be able to go out. Capt Dave overheard & immediately said he would get another boat & take us out (even though it was only us 2). He took us to numerous hot spots where the manatees are normally found. We were able to swim, play, & touch manatees. We were out for 2.5 hours & told him we were ready to head in & he offered to take us to more spots!! His customer service was exceptional. He is very knowledgeable and friendly. I would recommend wet suits, the water was chilly! Request Capt Dave- GREAT EXPERIENCE!!”
