Seeing everything under the water. Some of the fish came so close and eye to eye then they moved on. Could almost touch them.

Some friends and I took an excursion with this company. I chose to SCUBA dive while they snorkeled. After a delayed start we finally made it to the river. The guys on the boat were very friendly and helpful. We all enjoyed the excursion.

Hi Rebecca, We understand you are upset regarding the cancellation policy and we did save your family the seats on the boat. The cancellation amount is not the full amount of the trip and only a seat charge for each seat you reserved. In making every effort to inform the customer of the cancellation notice at booking we hope to see you next year. Thank you for understanding and please feel free to call us anytime to reschedule your Rainbow River experience. Thank you American Pro Diving Center

This shop was the best of the best in terms of customer service. Stephanie at the front desk is as helpful and professional as could be. Our dive master, John, made the devil's den and blue grotto dives so much more enjoyable than if we'd gone alone. Everything was so

They took us out on the boat, searched around for some Manatees, told us to get in the water, and brought us to them.
