We were in the area for a family reunion and decided to swim with the Manatee’s. We went to Sunshine River Tours Tour C the heated house boat. The Manatee’s were elusive that day but Captain Yues knew was very knowledgeable looking for signs on the water’s surface until we found 15 or more manatee’s at the end of a... More

This place is the absolute best. The employees are all so friendly and helpful and are there to make your experience the best that it can possibly be. They take great care of you from the minute you walk in the door, educating you about the kayak and the rules of the water, including interactions with the manatees and then... More

My friend and I couldn't have asked for better service and hospitality. The people were honest and helpful. I'd definitely recommend this company to anyone!

Put in a few blocks from 3 Sisters Springs. You're sure to see manatees here. Easy to kayak - CRK Company will teach you how to get into your kayak w/o falling out. Great for beginners. Very fairly priced. We're selling our kayaks and are just going to rent from them.

We went to Crystal river to spend the weekend there, and obviously our main reason was to see the manatees, we rented our kayaks with them and was a perfect experience, couldn't ask for anything better. they even offer Snorkel gear and everything you might need cheaper than walmart!! will definitely use them again! :)

I highly recommend this place to rent your kayaks for the amazing experience of watching the manatees y three sisters springs, just 10 minutes kayaking. It was a wonderful experience.

We had 5 people and no reservations, but great service saved the day! We rented 1 kayak and 1 canoe (2 hrs, $85) and put in about 15 minutes paddle away from the springs. The guys were all very nice and very helpful and we had a great paddle. Would definitely recommend this company - and we saw a whole... More

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! :)
