I recently came here with my two children with the sole purpose of getting to Three Sisters Springs to snorkel. We own our own snorkel gear so all we rented were kayaks from Bird's. When I called ahead I was told that it was a short and easy 30 minute kayak ride from this location. Well it is really a... More

We tried booking tours that day to do a manatee tour and we came across Birds. This was the best! Well worth the money. You get a wetsuit, snorkel and mask. Snacks on board too! While we where heading to the manatee grounds, we came across other boat tours that where packed with people on them. Our boat, 9 swimmers.... More

With so many choices in manatee tours, this one would be hard to beat! Captain Steve was a very knowledgeable guide and brought us to manatee within the first few minutes of launch. My kids (9 & 7) and my husband and I all were able to touch several manatee on our 6 AM tour this morning. Definitely a good... More

We had such an unforgettable time with Bird's Underwater that we still keep talking about it. We've researched many companies prior to our holiday, to choose the best one and we've got to say, our choice was worth every penny. We went for 6 am tour and together with another couple it was almost a private tour. Captain Cody was... More

Loved the experience. Family friendly. Seeing the manatees close-up was amazing. Captain Mike was awesome. He explained everything and treated us like it was a private tour. Friendly staff altogether. Definitely would recommend.

My husband, daughter and I went on the Birds Under Water boat tour and it was an amazing experience. Jeff was incredibly knowledgable about the springs, Crystal River's ecosystem and manatees. We learned a great deal. It was such a wonderful experience, My teenaged daughter did not want to leave the three sisters springs area. So clear and beautiful. We... More

Booked this online the day before as we were unsure due to the distance we had to travel to Crystal River and the cost as we were on a budget! We are so so glad we went for it. Birds Underwater is a great company and our captain, Steve, was really knowledgable and helpful. We hung out with a mamma... More

We just took the boat tour to get educated on the area before kayaking the next day. Very informative. We should all be aware how to protect our countries natural springs and wildlife.

I took my kids here for a discover scuba class and was really impressed with the level of professionalism and expertise displayed by this company. The people at the front desk were very nice to us and our instructor was top notch. He didn't try to rush us through and was very amicable and easy going. His last name is... More
