Take a clear kayak paddle through the serene, crystal clear waters of Crystal River into Hunter Springs, Jurassic Springs, and Three Sisters Spring! 

We offer a Manatee Tour option from November – March which is the highest chance to see manatees and a Springs Tour from April – October which is the time when Three Sisters Springs is open to kayak traffic. The Springs Tour does still come with a chance at seeing manatee it is just a bit lower due to water temperatures. 

This paddle is sure to excite any outdoor enthusiast or adventure-seeker alike.

We offer guided manatee tours and get an amazing chance to see them right under our kayaks!
The best time to see manatee is generally from November-March!
Year-round we experience other wildlife such as dolphins, fish, turtles, birds, and more!

This 2-2.5 hour guided adventure includes a relaxed paddle through
Kings Bay to Hunter Springs, Jurassic Springs, and Three Sisters Springs in Crystal River.

We launch at Kings Bay Park located at: 268 NW 3rd St, Crystal River, FL 34428

He’s also getting married in June. Austin is a blast to have as a guide and is very patient! He also collects koozies and is deathly afraid of spiders so please ask him to remove one if you ever get one in your kayak! Austin has a Bachelors in Business Management from Daytona State College.

Hunter Adkins

He’s a twin (see above) and also leads worship at Real Life.
Hunter teaches a risk prevention program for students in middle and high school. He is great with all ages and a blast to be on the water with! Hunter is also awesome with first-time-paddlers!
And yes, he can also rap the whole fresh prince of bel air song (not just the TV version). Dare him to do something for $20 – he’ll do it. Hunter has a Bachelors in English Lit. from UCF.

Benn

If there’s anything you should know about Benn, it’s that he lives life with no regrets! After graduating from Berklee College of Music, he toured many parts of the world playing lead guitar with various bands. After that, he worked for Ferrari for 25 years before settling down in the Crystal River area with his wife, Debbi. Now they have a ranch with rescue horses and dogs! If you’re lucky enough to be on the water with him, be sure to ask him about music, Paris, Ferrari, and of course manatees!

Tyler

Tour Guide

Also known as T-Pang! Tyler has aadventure running through his blood! He recently hiked the Appalachian Trail (make sure to ask him about it) and came back to Florida to spend his time on the water.
