We had not the chance of watching some manatees but Taylor , our guide, with all her knowledge of the area made us explore and swim in the springs which was a great experience. We were at high tide and coming back paddling is a workout for the shoulders!!

Taylor was a great guide and the springs are gorgeous!! Fun all around and worth the price! No manatees but it was still fun!
icon Response from Host , May 2022
Thank you for taking the time to write your review. Not sure why you gave a 4 star instead of 5 but we are glad you had so much fun. As you probably read online, manatee season runs from November 14th through March 31st during the colder winter months. During the warmer months, when you came, there are far less and very hard to find out there. That is the main reason this tour is called "Three Sisters Springs Kayak And Swim Eco-Tour". Thanks again and maybe you can return in manatee season and spot some of those incredible animals :)

Swimming with the manatees
Allie_K
, Nov 2021
Me and my sisters went on a Sunday to swim with the manatees and kayak down crystals rivers. This was the coolest experience ever. We got there on the last day the spring we swam in was open. A manatee swam along side our kayaks the whole way there. Then we got to swim and take pictures with many manatees in the spring. The spring wasn’t even that crowded either. Our tour guide was amazing and very nice. I would 110% recommend this to anyone who wants to swim with manatees or even just swim in crystal clear water.

A truly amazing experience, with a wonderful, friendly guide, a very relaxed paddle through beautiful scenery, would definitely come back during Manatee season in the hope of a sighting, however I would recommend this year round. My wife and I loved it

If you want to see a manatee…
Adam_P

So maybe fault of my own, but be prepared if it’s not mating season (Nov-Mar) you will not see a manatee. The kayak out there was ok took about 30 minutes to get to the springs. The springs are pretty and water is very clear, cold and deep. The spring area is probably half the size of a football field for scale. There are definitely a good amount people in there (50-100) Tour guide was great and low key. We found a great spot to eat after. The Seafood Seller, highly Recommend.
icon Response from Host , Aug 2021
Adam, are you seriously giving us a 3 star review because you came when it is NOT manatee season, and you didn’t see one? Our guides are trained very well on how to spot manatees. When it’s the extremely hot summer seasons, there are roughly 30 or so manatees in our 640 acre area. The manatees only come to the surface every 10-15 minutes, so hopefully you could understand why they are so hard to spot during our very hot summer days. It’s not for the lack of service our guides give, but it’s a NATURAL environment and the manatees do not perform like they’re at Sea World for us. Our guides are amazing, you personally told us you had a great time afterwards, and our service was great. How in the world is that equivalent to a 3 star review? Please give me a call personally on my cell phone at 561-676-3607 to discuss what we could have done better to earn a 5 star review from you. Or maybe you should just change it to the 5 star that our guide earned. Thank you :)

From the moment we got into the kayaks until the moment we got out, we had the best time. I was with my grandaughters and had read that most of the manatees leave in early May so did not know if we would see any or not at this time. Josh was our guide and within 10 minutes we were surrounded by them...the girls had four go under their kayaks, it was amazing. One surfaced and snorted within my reach. We were in awe. Three Springs is the most wonderful place, truly magical. Highly recommend this trip!! Thanks Josh, you rock!

Brie the mermaid siren was fabulous! She kept us both informed and also entertained. Her knowledge and skills were amazing and I'm sure to become legendary! We'll be back again and again. Don't let Mermaid Brie get away, she's a true gem! Don't forget to ask her about the bagels (or bay gulls)!
