Clearest water I've ever seen! Get there early to see many manatee! So many ways to experience this beautiful gem.

The water was very clear, and you could see to the bottom of the water floor! The water is cold, but you can't not get into the crystal clear water!

I had not spent time in Crystal River for a long time, always just passed through. My mistake. Lots of great changes in the area, one of which was the year round opening of Three Sisters and the trolley ride. It's well worth stopping by...More

Beautiful setting and the boardwalk provided a nice view. Tram takes you directly to the boardwalk and then back to your car. Peaceful setting.

We enjoyed seeing a family of sand cranes as well as the pristine blue/green spring waters while walking on the boardwalk. Will be back with snorkeling equipment.

Most of the manatees leave when Spring arrives and the weather gets warm. The Springs themselves maintain a constant temperature, so in warmer weather they may be colder than the surrounding waterways.

There are many kayak rental places. I would recommend one near Pete's Pier so you wont be paddling a long way just to get to the springs.
