I called later in the afternoon, and the owner was able to get me and my 2 daughters in for the next day. The shop is easy to find and well marked. We signed waivers, and he drove us to the launch point. He gave us water tight containers with maps on the back, which was great, and he gave clear directions for our paddle to Three Sisters Springs. My daughters chose a tandem glass bottom kayak, which was so cool, and I had a stand up paddle board. There was room to keep the containers, our water bottles, and our clothes under the seats of the kayak and the paddle board. My paddle board had a seat, which was great since a bit of weather kicked up on our way back and it was easier to sit and paddle. We ended up getting back a little late, as I apparently am not good at reading a map, but we called him when we got the the launch point and the owner was there within just a few minutes. This was a lovely paddle, and Bigfoot will get my business again the next time we are in the area.

This is the only place to rent Kayaks and boards in Crystal River! This place is the most reasonable place in Crystal River to go! The owner is very personable and very kind and knows all the hot spots to go to see Manatees and fishing. The owner Josh is a great craftsman and can build any kind of water craft you want! This place is just wonderful and is a must to go if visiting Crystal River!

I was a captain/guide for a manatee tour company two years ago. On trips I would see these awesome looking paddle boards with seats. I always wanted to give them a try but never had a chance. My wife’s best friend has always wanted to swim with manatees. We planned a drive down for the day from Destin Florida. I knew the best way to spend the day would be to rent paddle boards and take our own private tour. Everything from the booking process to getting on the water was perfect. Captain Jack Sparrow (Josh the owner) and his wife Jessica run a first class operation. We had 6 full hours on the water for less than half the price a two hour tour packed with tourists would have cost. They gave us tips on where we could find manatees away from the major tours. We found a secluded spot where we swam with about ten manatees. The Bigfoot paddle boards are so stable. It was really windy. At no time did we ever feel like we would fall. Having the seat was so nice. Anytime we got tired or just wanted to relax and eat our lunch we just plopped down and chilled. I highly recommend Bigfoot paddle boards! Thanks for a great day Josh and Jessica!

First of all the man running the rentals at hunter spring was dressed in full Jack Sparrow regalia and really looked like him!! He was doing awesome tricks on his paddle board which was hand crafted to look like a pirate ship. He gave us great advice on what boats to rent to get our crew on the water. The paddle board was wide and stable with a seat when we got tired. Great Price, Great Service, Highly Reccommend!

Big Foot is a small, family-run business that is way more personalized and friendly than those big companies. Josh took us to all of the best spots on the river on his custom made SUP boards. Highly recommended!
