DJ was a great guide! I used a paddleboard while my sister chose a kayak. Both were easy to navigate to the springs! The spring was breathtakingly beautiful!

The water and area was beautiful. Water is pleasantly cool for the time of year. Would recommend summer time if you can't tolerate cold temperatures.

Crystal springs itself are nice, don't need tour or deal with racist staff , get your kayaks elsewhere.
icon Response from Host , Jul 2022
Unbelievable Mr. Avneet Gupta. I’m very surprised by your review. First off, you showed up late for your tour by 30 minutes. instead of turning you away, our staff called me to see if there was something we could do for you. Then I, the owner, PERSONALLY CALLED TO LET YOU KNOW I WAS GOING TO LET YOU USE RENTALS INSTEAD. My employees felt so bad for you that they took the time to call me, and in return, you call them racist?!?!?! THEY TRIED TO HELP YOU EVEN THOUGH YOU SHOWED UP 30 MINUTES LATE FOR YOU TOUR!!!!!! This is how you thank us?!?!? You give a one star review and call us racist?!?!? I could have said no, and you would have been out your money and no tour. Have a great day and please don’t ever return to our business.

Had the most wonderful experience on the swim and kayak excursion at three sisters We went out of season but still we where lucky enough to see six manatee had time of my life.
icon Response from Host , Jul 2022
Thank you Laura for taking your tour with us and are so happy you got to see 6 manatees as well. When it is not officially manatee season it is much harder to spot but our guides are trained so well that they can usually spot them on most days. Thanks again for choosing us and we look forward to seeing you again in the future :)

Excellent service and friendly staff. Big shout out to Kylie!! She's been working at this facility for 1 month and I thought it was her family business. She is extremely knowledgeable, down to earth and made the whole family experience fun. Also, my daughter who is very petite for her age, was able to sit with Kylie on her paddle board. Thank you Kyle and staff members for a great day on the water.

Thanks Nicole for bringing your family for a tour with Kylie. She really is a great guide and tries to take care of our guests like she was a family member. She might not be a relative by blood, but we are all one big family helping each other out on a daily basis. Thanks again and we hope to see you and your family back again in the future :)

Beautiful day, wonderful guide!

Our guide (Kailey?) was excellent, even though it was only her 2nd day as solo guide. She was fun and patient with new kayakers (this excursion is totally doable for newbies). The water at 3 sisters was so beautiful and refreshing. No manatees because it isn’t season, but we still saw lots of other wildlife. My only recommendation: bring a dry pack for phones/keys!
icon Response from Host , Jul 2022
Thanks Ann, we are happy you had a great time. We appreciate your business and look forward to seeing you again in the future. PS. We do have a lockbox for your keys to be safe and dry while you are on your tour. The girls explain that when our guests are checking in but sometimes people don't hear it. We got your back next time though :)
