Manatees’ adorableness makes them the kittens of the sea, unlike raccoons, whose busy hands make them the pickpockets of the dumpster. Get to know a cuter critter with today’s Groupon: for $26, you get a guided snorkeling session with manatees, including equipment, from American Pro Diving Center (a $52.50 value).

American Pro Diving Center hosts manatee-centric immersive experiences all year, inviting guests on one-of-a-kind subsea adventures. The Crystal River Manatee Snorkel Tour begins at the storefront, where American Pro Diving provides essentials such as masks, fins, and manatee-attracting perfume before boating sightseers to the sea cows' natural habitat. With the support of an experienced tour guide, dip below the surface and befriend a majestic marine mammal as it serenely swims and files tax returns. Each aquatic encounter is recorded by your guide, ensuring fuss-free preservation of manatee memories. Trips last three to four hours, and tours held during the winter months depart at 6:30 a.m., 7 a.m., and 9 a.m.; see the website for more info.

Reviews

TripAdvisors give American Pro Diving Center an average of four owl eyes, and six Yelpers award it a four-star average:

  • [V]ery professional and serious about manatee conservation but at the same time made the whole experience a lot of fun – GlobeGirl99, TripAdvisor
  • The dive staff was extremely friendly and very helpful. Any time you are in Florida this is a must. – Jeff F., Yelp, 11/04/08

American Pro Diving Center

American Pro Diving Center helps visitors and locals explore the clear, teeming waters of Florida with year-round manatee tours and diving adventures. All-equipment-included manatee snorkel tours in Crystal River let snorkelers rub flippers with the rivers' large population of resident sea cows. In-water guides keep the experience safe and fun for both manatees and people, and snorkelers swim in between the gentle creatures, giving them a gentle pat or a canister of whisker wax.

For deeper subterranean adventures, the center offers classes that range from Discover Scuba Diving to full PADI open-water certification, in addition to specialty courses on rescue and wreck diving. Divers can plunge into one of seven diving excursions, including night dives in Rainbow River or mermaid line dancing in the lost city of Atlantis.
