We spent 9 nights in Florida, our plan was quite "packed" - Miami, Key West, Everglades, Tampa, Orlando, NASA Center, back to Miami. A lot of driving and not too much time to enjoy small towns etc. My husband was quite tired of driving back and forth to different places, he did not want to go to Cristal River. Luckily... More

Jerry was super friendly and helpful. Rented a pontoon for our family to snorkel the springs. AMAZING is the only word I can think of. Got there early and we were the ONLY ones in 3 sisters and this has to be in the top 10 things I have ever seen in nature. Spectacular to experience. No manatees were there... More

We rented a pontoon from Crystal Lodge Dive Center. We drove it over to Three Sisters Spring and went snorkeling. Unfortunately, we were too late in the season to see any manatees. However, the trip was really fun! We enjoyed looking at all of the wildlife underwater as well as the actual springs. The boat only cost $25 an hour.... More

The manatee tour was amazing! Even though there is less of a chance to see manatee this time of year we still managed to find some! Even if we didn't see any the trip would have been great. The Capitan took us to see some great sites and knew a lot about the area. Thanks for such a great time!

These folks were really nice and helpful. We rented a pontoon boat and they provided us with great instructions on where and where not to go. The staff that helped us launch was very helpful as well. The review below called their equipment junk, but I find that unfair. The equipment is not state of the art, but it's good... More

Keep looking for other places. The staff here is rude and not helpful at all. Their equipment is junk. Seriously, nothing but junk

We didn't get to snorkel with the manatees because they had already left the springs but it was a fun adventure anyway. We rented all our equipment and the kids had a wonderful time snorkeling and looking at all the beautiful fish in the clear water. The tour guide took us to King's spring and 3 sister's spring. I liked... More

Anita and her husband Charlie are absolutely wonderful! Anita was a great instructor and really took the time to make sure we were comfortable and understood the proper skills. I would highly recommend choosing Crystal Lodge Dive Center for anyone interested in becoming scuba certified or advancing their scuba skills. We did all of our work in the springs in... More

Rented a jon boat and some snorkeling equipment for my husband and I. Got to the shop at 8am and were out on the water by 9am. The staff was friendly and helpful and the price was GREAT! Will always use them when in town!

Have rented a pontoon boat almost every year when visiting Crystal River. They seem to have the most affordable pontoon boats. If your not looking for a luxury boat but want the ammenities of boating for fishing or diving, this is the place. Crystal River is beautiful and diving with the manatees is a wonderful experience. Was able to fish... More
