Our clear kayaks are setup as tandem kayaks and can hold 420 pounds total for two riders with no person over 250 pounds in the group. All groups will be doubled up unless over the weight limit or an odd-numbered group.  We do not do allow single riders on this tour due to limited availability of clear kayaks.  If you a single rider, you may be paired with another person from a separate group if necessary.  No exceptions.

Important Information

We require that you arrive 30 minutes prior to your reservation time!  There is a short video (required by FWC) and waivers to sign before being sent out.

Your time on the water starts at your booking time. As such, if you arrive at your reservation time you will miss your tour. Tours leave at the scheduled reservation time.  If you are late for the tour there are no refunds, cancelations, or rescheduling.  NO EXCEPTIONS!

This tour operates in Crystal River year round and per Crystal River City ordinance, there is a $5.00 per vessel launch fee that is charged at checkout.

There are no shoes allowed on our clear kayaks.  You will leave your shoes at the launch location and can put them back on at the end of the tour.

THERE IS NO SWIMMING ON OUR CLEAR KAYAK TOURS!  It is extremely difficult to get on and off of the clear kayaks so we do not allow swimming on our clear kayak tours.  We recommend taking our swim tours if you choose to get out and swim 🙂

What to Bring

We recommend a bathing suit or comfortable clothing, sunscreen, hat, polarized sunglasses, a towel, and dry clothes.
