Patrons can choose to stay on the boat or strap on a snorkel and mingle with the manatees, led by in-water guides all the while. The dive master takes video during the adventure to make a DVD available for purchase after the event. Tours run every day starting at 7 a.m. and 8:30 a.m., must call to reserve seating. Tour times will change mid-November; please call (352) 563-0041 for start times.

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.

From when we walked in to when we left, we had nothing but great service! Easy to get signed up, tour guides were AMAZING, and the water/manatee viewing was excellent. Definitely would recommend and will be back! Weather was about 70 and sunny, couldn't be happier!

Highly recommend American Pro Diving Center. We just took 9 kids and 4 on the swim with manatee tour through them today. Everyone was very professional, friendly and accommodating. Marlin our captain was great and very knowledgeable. Would do it again and only use APD Center. Can't say enough positive things about center and it's staff.
