“Great winter destination!”
Review of Crystal River

Reviewed 28 June 2018

If you want to see the manatees go during the winter months as they come to the springs to be warmer...they come in throngs!
This is also a great spot to scuba and in fact is one of the places to get your scuba license! The city has some quaint shops and a Tea Cafe and coffee shop!

This is the place to come if you want to see manatees up close and personal! You can actually get in the water with them and snorkel around and enjoy seeing them in their natural habitat. We saw a mother and nursing calf. This is much better than other places, where all you see are their noses coming up for air!

Great place to visit. You’ll need to bring kayak or rent one or take a manatee boat out to swim w them. It’s a must do when in this area. Nothing like seeing a Manatee close up

Crystal River is so quiet and laid back. The water is so crisp and clear, if I ever get the chance to retire I would certainly want to live in Crystal River / Momosassa area Hidden jem !

Fantastic place to observe nature up close and personal with glass clear water. During Manatee season a unique opportunity to observe them in a unique environment.
