Why Crystal River?

Crystal River, Florida boasts the largest concentration of Manatees in the world, so it is no question why Crystal River is known worldwide as the “Home of the Manatees”.  Crystal River is the ONLY place where you can legally swim with these amazing and gentle creatures right in their own natural habitat. In 1983, the Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge was established 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.
