Getting out of the house is often hampered by the fact that most houses are located inside a bigger and fancier house. Step outside the house outside your house with today's Groupon: for $26, you get a three-hour guided manatee snorkeling tour from Adventure Diving in Crystal River (a $55 value). Tour boats depart every day between 7 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. The staff at Adventure Diving has maintained a perfect safety record for more than 39 years, and the instructors channel this regard for responsible diving in each of their guided tours, which include all necessary gear. Aqueous vessels set out upon local waterways with a maximum of six people to keep tours personable and avoid raising manatee defenses with hoards of chicken-fighting humans. During the subaquatic adventure, groups paddle through the water and breathe through snorkels while scoping out marine life and observing manatee habitats. The manatee routes allow patrons to marvel at the gentle gray creatures and practice with their underwater a cappella troop.
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.
