Memorable Kayak with Manatees in gorgeous Clear water Springs
Carla_C
, Jun 2022
What an incredible experience! Highly recommend. Josh was our tour guide and he did an awesome job on guiding us through the bay & springs and pointing out all the wildlife! We did the clear kayaks and could see the manatees swimming u see us. I’d advise doing the earlier tour- 9am because it gets so hot so early!

It's more exhausting than we expected, it might be better if we could have more time to paddle freely, or just floating on the spring water…

I am an experienced kayaker However these "clear kayaks" were more canoes than kayaks.They were slow and lumbering and hard to paddle, hitting the sides of the boat frequently. The seats offered no support and were not stable. I went with a partner than was new at paddling and it was quite hard to do with the higher sides. So I was left to paddle for two. The trip was beautiful as was 3 Sisters, but the experience would have been more enjoyable in real kayaks.

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. We totally understand where you are coming from as an experienced kayaker. The clear kayaks definitely do NOT paddle anything like a normal kayak. They are more of a novelty for a nice, leisurely paddle to see Three Sisters Springs. We offer the tour on our normal sit-on-top kayaks as well for guests who might want a normal kayaking experience. Thanks again and we hope to see you again soon :)

We visited in the middle of the week and late in the afternoon, so we had the springs almost to our group! Seeing manatees was the highlight but an alligator and turtles added to it!

The trip was amazing! Great tour guid. Josh showed us all the best places and made us feel like family. The staff at the shop was so helpful and let us spend too much money at the gift shop. We will definitely do this again!

Overpriced for what you get. The trip started late and ended early. The guide didn’t show us anything we couldn’t have seen in our own.
icon Response from Host , Apr 2022
Karrie, I tried calling you and I also texted you about your experience. Please call me at 352-586-5259. The price is the exact same as every other company in the area. You are correct on not seeing anything that you couldn't see on your own, but did they not teach you ANYTHING about the area?!?!?!? If you did not learn anything at all, please contact me and I would LOVE to give you a FULL refund. I will also throw some kayaks to use to go out on your own as well. I hope to hear from you soon :)

Our tour guide was awesome. We enjoyed the actual kayaking tour however we were disappointed the kayaks were not crystal clear. They looked super dirty and were opaque. We still felt like we had to look over the kayaks to see I steD of looking down or through the kayaks.
