Crystal River Travel Guide: 40 reviews and 72 photos


This is definitely not your typical Florida visit.

We came special to swim and kayak with the manatees in Crystal River. This was an amazing experience that is well worth visiting Florida for.

The manatees are so gentle for such a large animal. They weigh from 1000-3000 pounds.


Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Manatees
  • Cons:None really, just don't stay for too many days or you might get bored.
  • In a nutshell:MANATEES- well worth visiting Crystal River for!
