A wonderful kayaking experience. The staff was friendly, informative, and accommodating. In comparison to our recent experience at Weeki Wachee River which was terrible, we were so pleased.

We hit it off with the friendly well educated mate from Chokoloskee . We had a great experience in 3 sisters springs on a weekday morning trip, outside of Manatee season, got to enjoy the springs by ourselves, which I’m sure doesn’t happen often!
