Your Crystal River Kayaking Rental Connection

About Crystal River and Kings Bay, Florida Kayaking

Kayaking is an excellent way to quietly explore our waterways of Crystal River and Kings Bay, exceptional in their natural beauty with undisturbed islands, inlets, backwaters and forests, cherished by nature lovers and photographers. Kayaking, like canoeing, is also known as paddling, but is different by the sitting position of the paddler and the number of blades on the paddle—in a kayak the paddler faces forward, legs in front, using a double-bladed paddle. Kayaks are also physically different as they have a lower profile, and our Adventure Center rents tandem and single "sit-on-top" kayaks.

Kayaking and Manatee Tours in Crystal River

Kayaks are easier to use than most who have not kayaked think and are very stable. One of the greatest benefits of kayaking is how quiet a boating experience they provide. In Crystal River and Kings Bay, quiet is cherished as it will allow you to get closer to manatee, fish, birds and wildlife of all types, especially in and around shallow waters. And if you come aground, freeing yourself is as easy as a soft push off with your paddle. Our rental kayaks are made of durable roto-molded polyethylene resins which are very light and forgiving, as well as easy to maneuver. They are great to fish and take beautiful photographs from.

Affordable Kayak Rentals in Crystal River

Unlike many other outfitters, when you rent a kayak or any other boat from our Plantation on Crystal River Adventure Center marina & dive shop you won't have to wait, take a shuttle bus to a public ramp or have no access to facilities. As you would expect from a resort hotel, we have everything you will need to enjoy your time on the water, including guided tour options and packages including accommodations and breakfast.  You can also rent your kayak at some of the best rental rates anywhere in Crystal River.
