About Crystal River Kayak Company
We have the largest selection of boats and the closest dock to Three Sisters Springs. We are the ONLY outfitter located on a canal 8-10 minutes from the Three Sisters Springs. Our customers do not have to go through any wind and chop on Kings Bay to get to the Three Sisters Springs. We offer a selection of gifts and apparel, alongside kayak accessories such as waterproof bags, phone cases and goggles. You can rent mask/snorkel sets and wetsuits (required if swimming during Manatee Season) from us if needed. Our facilities include changing rooms, portable restrooms, and a water cooler to refill any bottles you may bring for your trip. We welcome paddlers with all levels of experience, from first timers to hard-worn adventurers.

Despite having a reservation, when I arrived I was told that the on site parking area was filled and that I would have to go to a nearby bank to park in its lot. I walked to the office to sign in, back to my car to change, apply tanning lotion, and gather necessities and then back to the kayak launch area. Admittedly I am a newbee kayaker but I don't believe that expecting a flush toilet and a changing stall is unreasonable. Crystal River is a tourist destination and not all tourists will have changed into bathing attire before arriving to rent a kayak. After using the filth filled porta potty the last thing I wanted to do was pull on my swim clothing there. There isn’t much to say about the kayak except that it was adequately comfortable for the three hours spent on the water. Unfortunately my companion did not realize that there were rubber water stops that that had been pushed to the center of the oar. If they had been properly placed at each end of the oar before being given to him it would have prevented water streaming into the vessel each time the paddle was lifted. The manatees were hiding the day I visited, but I did see one swimming in the canal as I was returning my kayak.

Rental experience was easy and quick and price was reasonable. Staff were helpful and friendly, and will give you directions and map, and get you launched right into the water. Great location, it's a short and easy paddle to Three Sisters Spring, maybe 15-20 minutes, and not far from Kings Bay either. Parking lot isn't too big but wasn't an issue in the morning. Port-o-pottys on site.
