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.

We did not see any manatees but that did not deter us from having a blast. Our 10 year old daughter said this was the highlight of our entire trip. We rented kayaks.

The spring was beautiful and we saw some cool fish. Wish we could have seen some Manatee. Staff was very friendly. Would go back again.

My daughter and I had a two hour guided kayak tour that we loved. We had a choice of single or double kayaks, we chose to ride together. We were late in the manatee season(end of March), so we only saw a couple manatees. Our guide Chris was great and we learned so much we didn't mind missing out. She... More

During my stay I rented watercraft from Crystal River each afternoon. I started with a kayak and decided to try Stand Up Paddle Boarding. The staff gave me a lesson and I was off! Loved it. The location is an easy paddle from the beautiful springs.
