2016 Manatee Trip

The opportunity to swim with manatees is one of the many pleasures of exploring the aquatic world. These gentle giants will leave you with an everlasting smile and memories you will never forget. Our manatee adventures in Crystal River, Florida will give you the opportunity of swimming with manatees and much more.

Join Pura Vida Divers along with TheLivingSea January 22nd-24th for our two day adventure as we visit some of the best places in Florida to have a wild manatee encounter. Best of all, no experience or scuba certification is required. Our years of experience and knowledge will help you have the best encounter.

But the manatee experience is only half the fun. Drift along the magnificent Rainbow River. The crystal-clear springs of Rainbow River are loaded with fish and aquatic plants. Search for turtles hiding in the sea grass. Come face to face with the prehistoric-looking gar fish. You can choose to either dive or snorkel this part of the adventure.
