Birds is a full service dive shop for all sorts of classes, You can also do a manatee snorkel tour or rent kayaks.
I'd also recommend renting a kayak for the afternoon so that you can experience the manatees from both underwater and above water.

We zipped into some fabulous and very clean wetsuits provided for us and headed off with snorkels and kayaks as Dave led the way on his trusty SUP.
I recommend Hunter Spring Kayaks to everyone who wants to do kayaking or paddling at Cristal River to see the manatees in three sisters springs.
