Since 1973, Adventure Diving has led guests into subaqueous utopias to explore the thriving habitats and creatures that reside there. During three-hour guided manatee tours, passengers board one of four available boats outfitted with necessary gear, including snorkels and manatee-to-English dictionaries. After an experienced captain navigates to the day’s destination, knowledgeable guides quarterback the convoy into the cloudless waters of Crystal River, where explorers don their underwater gear in hopes of seeing gentle, slow-moving manatees munching on vegetation, resting, and shaping their whiskers into stylish soul patches. To ensure each participant reels in a memorable experience, Adventure Diving caps tour groups at a maximum of six people per boat.
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.
