This is in a great location- 15 minutes of easy kayaking to get to Three Sisters Springs. Because the manatees are now gone for the summer, you can kayak right into the springs and take a swim. The kayaks we rented were great and came with a back seat rest. The employees were very friendly and professional, answering our questions... More

We did a lot of research before we went to Crystal River, FL. I found "A Crystal Kayak" to have the best reviews and rates. There is a Manatee Visitors Center in CR and they even recommended A Crystal Kayak. I had a coupon for $5 off and I told the attendant about the coupon and she honored it without... More

We used our own kayaks and "self-launched" from their site. The location is the best you will find to get to the springs and the staff is immensely helpful and knowledgeable. If you're looking to rent a kayak or self launch for the day, I highly recommend A Crystal River Kayak Company! We will definitely be returning in the future!

SO much fun!!!!! The staff was adorable and super friendly. One of my favorite experiences EVER! It took about an hour to see any manatees, but it was worth it. Plus, the scenery was fantastic and the whole thing was perfect. I WILL be back!! :)

This is the one place I will keep coming back every time I visit three sisters springs. You can launch your own vessel or rent one from them. They're prizes are affordable and the staff is friendly and knowledgeable. You can. Call ahead and reserve your kayak or come in when not busy and rent on the spot. Love this... More

This place is comfortable and safe with great prices and awesome equipment :) My family and I had such a great time, I go back about every 3 months as the staff is so friendly. The Manatees are great but, the area is just really beautiful to kayak in.

The problem with this company is the location. It is a boring dirty trip to the springs from here. The water was not clean, there was nothing to see until getting to the beautiful springs. It is through a residential area, you are seeing backs of homes. The cost to rent the equipment is high when much of the trip... More

Extraordinarily pleasant and personable staff & dock hands. Their ramp is a 10 min easy paddle to the 3 Sisters and another 15-20 min to Kings Bay. Perfect for a quickie tour.
