Ha, they losts our business quickly as they could care less about their customers. That cannot be said with this place. So even if you are staying at the Plantation it is... More

I called a couple placed and chose Crystal River Watersports because they seemed to take their time with me on the phone more than the others. The one with the most reviews seemed like it was too big and commercial which turned me off. CRW was . We walked in the door and they greeted us like we were long... More

This small company is owned by Mike and he really cares about his clients. His boats are clean and safe and his Captains are interesting, knowledgeable, and experienced. All the equipment you need is provided by this company: wetsuits, flippers, masks, snorkels, tanks, etc. In the shop, there are t-shirts, jackets, etc. to buy, along with snacks and cameras. They...

We came to Crystal River during the low season in October to enjoy some diving, and CRWS was the perfect guide operation. They were accomodating to our requests based on diving skill level, mostly that it had been a few years since we'd been diving. Guides Dawn and Mike were top notch. They helped us pick the perfect dive spots... More

Terrific crew and such a fun family adventure for all ages. Our captain made sure that we not only saw manatees, but that we got to interact with them. On our boat trip we had a blast learning about the Florida wildlife from the captain. The tour was a bit expensive, but we got so much out of it and... More

We came to see manatees and to do an easy dive with a 12 yr old and we had a great time! Even in late spring Cap Sam quickly found manatees for our small group to enjoy and also has great knowledge of the area which was interesting to hear. In the afternoon we did the rainbow river drift dive... More

We loved it. Capt Larry was so attentive with our 9 yr old & made it a special trip for her. All snorkel equipment & suits seemed to be brand new. Definitely go in early morning. Nice hot chocolate after tour to warm you up. Highly recommend this business. A must do adventure!

It was my ambition to swim with manatees so on a trip to Orlando in November 13 we planned a day trip to Crystal River to do it. We didnt book, we just set off early from Orlando - we stopped for breakfast and arrived in Crystal River at about 10.30am. We just drove around and came across Capt John... More

I could not have asked for a better experience! We went on the morning tour February 16th with Capt. Fred and John. They were friendly and knowledgeable. The manatee encounter was AMAZING! We got to pet them, and rub their bellies and one even sucked on my leg. It was hands down one of the best experiences of my life,... More
