We had no idea that this was such a special and historic state park. The boardwalk in particular was most beautifully constructed, but there were little surprises everywhere. Something for everybody!

This is why we came to Crystal River to see the Manatees, we were not lucky this time as the temperature was very high and the Manatees go out to see when the River gets to warm, the area is lovely though and the ranger...More

I’m no manatee expert, and the visit I wrote about was the first time we’d been to that part of Florida - but, if I understand my reading and the boat guides correctly, April is too late in the year to see big concentrations of them. They gather in warm springs and power station outflows in the winter, but when spring comes and the water in the bays warms up, they go off in search of food. That was our situation last week - very few of them back in the clear springs which run into Kings Bay, we saw ours around springs out in the bay where the water wasn’t as clear. Are you going to Crystal River?
