Folks, I always read the negative reviews people write in order to identify any possible trends. I did the same here, and I really believe there are people that just can't be satisfied. Crystal River Kayak Company is the way to go. The springs are within 10 minutes (we saw manatee within 3 minutes of the launch), they give you... More

If you are looking to rent, look no further as this is the place to go. Only a 10 minute paddle to the famous Three Sisters Springs. If you are looking to purchase, these folks will do everything possible to assist you with your purchase. They will let you try several different kayaks to help in the decision making process....

I had the most amazing experience on Crystal River, thanks to the Crystal River Kayak Company. My friend and I were traveling from Miami and arrived at the destination 30 minutes before closing...they were incredibly generous and stayed open for more than two hours for us! Not only is the staff very understanding, but also very knowledgable. They explained the... More

We traveled to Crystal River during the holidays and had a great experience at A Crystal River Kayak Company. The staff were extremely knowledgeable and accommodating of a larger (8) group. Everything was in great shape, and they gave us great tips on the best places to view the manatees without disturbing them in their natural environment. I would highly... More

We rented a double kayak and the price is fair. About 10 minute row to the beautiful Three Sister Spring through a peaceful and quiet canal in a residential neighborhood. Other kayak rental places are located outside of the canal network and takes longer to the spring. Only thing I don't like is my GPS was confused while trying to... More

We chose to rent kayaks from this company based on online reviews. They totally lived up to their reputation. They were extremely accommodating, helpful, and friendly. They are not the cheapest game in town, but I still felt it was an excellent value for the price. Our family rented a total of 3 double and 1 single kayaks, which we... More

We are a family of 9 and visited Crystal River kayak/manatee viewing on January 2, 2015. What a great experience from the friendly staff to the family friendly kayaking. Very easy trip, even for beginners. The crystal clear spring water is amazing! So easy to see the manatee. The river water is not as clear, but there was a lot... More
