We booked their guided swim last minute and it's been the highlight of our trip so far. Our guide was Josh and we really enjoyed him! He is from the area and very passionate about the ecosystems and wildlife there, which is exactly what we were looking for. We got started late - not the company's fault - and Josh apologized about the late start and assured we'd have all the time we wanted, which we did. We knew it wasn't peak manatee season, but we got to see a mama and newborn! Josh was great at being sure we were respecting the welfare of the manatees and got lovely photos at the same time. We also appreciated that he politely asked other groups out there to respect restricted areas of the springs when they weren't - so important to preserve that space so everyone can continue to enjoy it. Thank you for a wonderful trip!

We loved our experience! Our guide Joshua kept it fun and we learned a lot about the local wildlife. Our kids even listened😃. He made it easy for my kids to get and out of the kayak to swim. There shop/check in area was cute and stocked with all the things you may have forgotten. Even has a food truck right there. Highly recommend.!

The water bikes are cool for a different experience, but overall I'd take a kayak next time. They really hurt your rear after a while. We biked to the three sisters springs and back which was about a 30 minute trip altogether. We would have squeezed in going to hunter springs park which was SO close but again our butts were hurting lol. You can't take these in to the springs so it was a pain to tie off and swim in with our two mall kids. Take your scuba mask into the springs if swimming! Definitely recommend a kayak for going all the way into the spring. So more comfy seats and a larger propeller would be amazing!

Came here for a day visit with my mom. Our tour guide Alex was awesome and made sure we had the best experience possible! We did get to see two manatees while paddling back in. Would definitely recommend this company and also coming on a weekday as it still gets very busy at the springs :) Also highly recommend the Tea House for lunch and some delicious loose leaf tea or a glass of wine ;)
