Nick was our guide today. I wanted to take our granddaughter out on the waterways to see things she would not see living in South Florida unless she was able to kayak down in the keys around the various estuaries amidst the islands down there. What a great tour guide Nick was. He gave us a totally explained tour of... More

This is the second time we have rented from this business. They are very customer friendly and helpful. The location on a canal near the springs is excellent. Highly recommended

3 of us went and the cost was reasonable for a few hours heading to the springs. Change room close to dock. Easy paddle from here, parking tricky on weekends. Three sisters closed till Nov though

We've been doing a King's bay kayak tour with our guide Nick. It has been a great experience. Despite the fact that this is not the best period for Manatee hunting we managed to see 4 of them, among others a mom and his baby. We saw turtles, some nice birds and even a snake. Nick was very friendly and... More

We chose to go on our own with a map and they were very informative. It was not the season for seeing manatees but we found 5 manatees! We had a great time! Beautiful scenery and we will come back when 3 sisters springs opens up again.

When I called late this morning to see if we could get a guided kayak tour they had to check if they could get a guide for us last minute and we were thrilled they could accommodate us. We had a little trouble finding their location because it's set back from the road and we missed the sign on the... More

Beautiful area to float a boat. I was disappointed that Three Sisters Springs was closed for restoration. The company was very upfront about the closing before we signed any papers or exchanged money. Saw manatee, loons, and variety of birds. We easily did this in 2 hours, you may want more time if the Springs are open. 2 Tips: Ask... More

We originally came up here to go to weeks watchee, but it was to capacity, do we came here. I am so glad we did. There was a lot more open spaces and more room to be away from the crowds. There weren't as many bugs, and we saw a manatee right away. Everyone who helped us here was very... More
