Crystal River

Crystal River is the only place in the United States to legally experience the up-close encounter of swimming with Manatees, thanks to the certified guides that ensure these gentle giants are treated with the utmost respect by using responsible passive observation techniques.

Located on Central Florida’s Gulf Coast, Crystal River and the surrounding cities of Old Homosassa, Inverness and Floral City are an authentic showcase of outdoor adventure and scenic beauty. Within tens of thousands of acres of protected state parks, forests and wildlife refuges, visitors can explore miles of bicycling, walking, birding, horseback riding and hiking trails to unlock a wild and wonderful world of natural, recreational and archaeological treasures.
