About Us:

Since 1994, Crystal River Outfitters has safely sent both locals and visitors on exciting paddle trips down the Crystal River. For over 20 years we have maintained a 100% success rate, offered wonderful adventures for our guests of all ages, and established a great partnership with Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore.

“It is our mission to showcase the area’s natural beauty to our visitors – via boat and bike, while maintaining sustainable business practices.”

Owners since 2004, Matt and Katy Wiesen continuously strive to showcase the Crystal River and Glen Arbor to our guests, while keeping a deep commitment to safety and the preservation of the natural environment. It is our goal to provide the highest level of customer service and operate under sustainable business practices to assure future generations of the same pristine environment found by paddlers of today.

Perhaps one of our greatest joys in owning Crystal River Outfitters, are the 30 employees we surround our guests with every summer. Our staff is comprised of both local and summer residents, many who have returned for multiple seasons.
