From diving the 72-degree springs in, Crystal River, to offshore dives in the tropical waters of the Gulf of Mexico's Nature Coast, we offer it all! Fishing? Whether you enjoy hook and line or spear fishing (offshore), we offer deep sea, inshore, and bay fishing.
Aquamarine Images also offers Rainbow River tours, skin diving, topside and underwater photography and video, bird and wildlife identification, ecology tours, family vacations, or just a day getaway on the water!

Captain Charlie Slider, also known as "Waterdog" in the Crystal River and Homosassa, Florida, local waters, has taken many hundreds of clients to meet his beloved West Indian Manatees. Since 1988, his knowledge, experience, and enthusiasm has become so infectious, that clients return year after year, bringing other family members and friends to meet the endangered West Indian Manatee.


We look forward to hearing from you and await your joining Aquamarine Images and Captain Charlie, for the "Experience Of A Lifetime"


Come to the sunshine state and swim with the manatee in Crystal River, Florida. The adventure begins at MANATEE TOUR AND­ DIVE, one of two places in America where swimming with the manatee is legal.

Our Captains are experienced and knowledgeable about the West Indian Manatee activities and how they interact with humans. The adventure is like you are on a river safari with all the wild life. Bird watchers enjoy the wide variety of birds that live in the Crystal River area. Great blue heron, egret, eagle, red shoulder hawk, ibis, and birds underwater like the anhinga and cormorant are a medium to large aquatic bird just to mention a few.

Another great way to view the aquatic life is renting a kayak or canoe, or a Guided Kayak Tour offered by Manatee Tour and Dive. Kayaking in Crystal River is a unique adventure.
