My husband, daughter and I went on a Kings Bay guided kayak tour. It was a great experience! I highly recommend Crystal River Kayak Company. The guides were extremely helpful and friendly. We were fortunate to also see some manatees.

Two families met here Saturday to kayak with manatees. The staff was friendly and helpful. We saw 4 manatees in various locations. Even though it is manatee season and areas are closed off, the manatees are swimming around and can be seen.

Fun way to get some exercise on your vacation. We paddled out to the bay and back, had fun. Didn't take the full 4 hour option, 2 hours is enough to get to a destination and back. Also, I'm only in good enough shape to paddle about 2 hours. Bonus because they'll let you launch later in the day if... More

Great day kayaking with excellent directions of the area. Nick gave the best recommendation for seeing a manatee. Turned out to be one of the best days of my life. I am definitely going back for another adventure.

5 of us (4 adults and one teenager) set out for an evening water adventure on the Gulf. We booked the Sunset Tour with the Crystal River Kayak Company and Nick was our tour guide. After he fitted us with life vests, we headed out approximately an hour and a half before sunset. That gives you plenty of light to... More

We were hoping to run into some manatees since we weren't able to get into 3 sister springs as it was closed for repairs. Unfortunately, we didn't see anything. We were also told we may see some turtles but none of those either. It was a very easy, peaceful paddle. It would be perfect for a beginner as there's no... More

Lovely place to kayak and you can cross the river to Crackers a good place to eat...and we saw turtles or Terrapins on the way. You can take... More

Operators very professional. a wonderful experience. Water pretty clear and saw one turtle. Only disappointment was that the three sisters area that housed many of the manatee was closed for repairs.

The wife and I visited in hopes of seeing a manatee in the off season. Unfortunately, didn't get to see any but the staff were excellent and we had a great few hours on a kayak and paddle board. We'll be back in the fall hopefully.
