Crystal River is the perfect location because the activities in the river never stop. Have you ever dreamed of swimming with manatees? Now is your chance! Winter marks the arrival of 400 or more manatees looking for the "warm" 72 degree spring water. The fishing season lasts all year long. Whether, you want to fish for grouper or trout, Crystal River is a fisherman's paradise. Once summer arrives, it is time to load up the family for a short ride to the scallop grounds. Snorkeling for those delicious bay scallops is an all-time favorite. Of course, the beautiful nature scenery is always on display.
Crystal River is one of the premier boating destinations in all Florida. Ultimately, you can have fun year around with the whole family. Come visit us and see all Crystal River has to offer!
