Florida Scuba Diving

Crystal River and Manatees

There are two things that make Florida scuba diving at Crystal River something special-the clarity of the water and chance for one of the great animal encounters in the underwater world-swimming with manatees.

Crystal River runs through porous rock, creating a natural filtering system that results in some of the clearest water on the planet. These waters are perfect for observing manatees.

Florida diving would not be complete without these huge, placid animals. Some of these gentle giants can grow up to 14 ft. (3m) and weigh a ton and a half. Scuba diving with manatees is not permitted, but snorkeling with one of these huge animals in crystal clear water is a fantastic experience.
