All our trips are loop or circle routes meaning, they are
not float trips downriver.  We are located in a coastal area
affected by the tides so while sometimes the water flows out, it also flows in. Currents are not strong so that means
you have to paddle to get where you're going.  The same thing applies to  rental trips.  They are all on the Crystal
River and you have to paddle, you cannot just float down and shuttle back.
