We rented single kayaks from A Crystal River Kayak Company to paddle around Kings Bay after a morning of swimming with the manatees. We reserved them for noon and there was a mad crush of paddlers when we arrived. The guys at the desk were very pleasant and because we lost a half hour, they extended our trip for another... More

Easily located, with parking and basic Restroom facilities. Good safety guidelines and detailed explanation of maps. Adherence to Waterway Laws and Guidelines is key to enjoying the wildlife around you... And so much cheaper than breaking them! It's such a simple, leisurely activity, that offers a completely different view of the marshes and islands - habitats shared by Humans and... More

The best kayak company if you want to see the Manatees! Friendly staff, easy access to the springs. Three sisters is the most beautiful, but we saw a lot manatees at Magnolia Springs. 2 hours rental is more then enough. Crystal clear water! We will be back! :)

Visited August 2014, and spent a morning on the lake. We had no problems getting on the water as the staff are excellent at their job, and very welcoming. We booked for 2 hrs. with the agrement that if we were longer then we could pay the extra on return. As it turned out we were out for 4 hrs.... More

This is a fantastic location to kayak. The folks are so friendly and helpful. The location is very close to three sisters springs. Then it is just a short paddle to Kings Bay. Great location to see manatees!

We have rented kayaks in Crystal River before, but this was the quickest and easiest we've had to actually get in the water and go. They were also the cheapest, with some of the nicest equipment. Thanks again!

My husband and I enjoyed the close encounter with the manatees. We were happy with the location and helpful, friendly staff that helped us have a great adventure. I recommend renting a kayak and go see Three Sister Springs. Thank you Capt Mary Morgan and staff!

Don't be taken back by the place when you drive up. This shop to rent kayaks to see manatees is well worth it. I had never kayaked so I was a little nervous doing the tandum but that was gone as soon as Travis helped me in. Not bad at all. Very short venture to get to the Three Sisters... More
