I enjoyed my experience with this company. The check in was speedy and informational and I was on my way in less than 5 minutes. While I have to admit that kayaking isn't my favorite pastime, what made it worthwhile was seeing a dolphin swim next to my kayak in the canal. If you are looking to rent a kayak... More

It was very close to our hotel. No hassel... rented a double canoe and had a great time. And they explain everything very well and give you a waterproff map of the canals, springs and bay.

Great staff, very helpful for beginners. Spot on with directions to the 3 sister springs. Would recommend to all levels. Snorkelers were lucky in September to spot a manatee.

Great place for kayaking at reasonable prices. They give you a map, and off you go! Three Sisters spring is just around the corner and is incredibly beautiful. You can swim, snorkel in here in crystal clear water. We also saw several turtles, otters, and a dolphin on a 2 hour kayak trip! Definitely worth it. Go in the morning... More

I called a few days prior to Labor Day weekend and was able to reserve two kayaks. I have my own paddle board, and they allowed me to launch at their convenient site, along with my friends who rented from this establishment. Kayaks were in great condition, and the map they provided was very helpful. Prices for four- or eight-hour... More

Loved this place the guy working at the front was very cool friendly and knowledgeable of both what he does and the area so gave us some great super secret insider tips. We had a blast and saw a manatee on the way back. The kayaks were great!

We rented 3 kayaks for a few hours and really enjoyed our time! The staff was very patient and helpful and provided some guidance on where to go as well as a map. The canals leaving the docking area were just beautiful, and three sisters springs were just a 10 minute paddle away.

Friendly and knowledgeable staff will guide you the right way when you rent. We were looking for good gear and a way to enjoy the springs and bay and maybe see a manatee or two without encroaching on their space. The staff provided good advice and you can easily see the sights by kayak and have less impact on the... More

Stopped in here on a whim, just wanted to do some kayaking, the staff was friendly and helpful and got us on our way pretty darn quick. We had an awesome time kayaking and checking out the springs close by, the input is very close to the springs and you can easily get there by kayak in 15 mins. They... More

My father in law was taking our family out for a morning of kayaking so didn't have a chance to check the company out ahead of time. After returning I checked tripadvisor and found out they were ranked #1. I can see why. Nothing fancy, and you could easily drive by it. It sits back off the road a little... More
