Why Crystal River? Crystal River’s King’s Bay offers a unique safe warm water refuge for manatees year-round. In 1983 the Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge was created to specifically protect the Florida manatees who consider this area their home. King’s Bay is fed by 28 natural springs which maintain a constant temperature of 72 °F (22 °C)–a temperature that the manatees love. The best time to experience the manatees is November to March when the water temperature in the Gulf of Mexico cools and the world’s largest population of these spectacular mammals converges in King’s Bay to enjoy the warmer water temperatures. While during these cooler months hundreds of manatees congregate in the bay, we have a resident population of manatees who enjoy our hospitality and stay here in the Crystal River-area year round, so any day is a good day to swim with the manatees.
We’re big into the ecotours. We believe in responsible tourism that respects the ecosystem and avoids putting undo stress on the manatees. Our well-educated experienced in-water guides will help you enjoy your time swimming with the manatees in a manner that respects their space and the King’s Bay ecosystem. We hope to provide our customers with a relaxing and educational experience, so please don’t hesitate to ask your boat captain and in-water tour guides questions about these lovely mammals.
