Crystal River, Florida: 72-Degree Waters with a Seasonal Population of Manatees

Situated about 90 minutes north of Tampa on Florida’s Gulf Coast, Crystal River is surrounded by the sparkling Kings Bay. The bay is fed by a springs system that keeps the water temperature at a constant 72 degrees, making it a nice spot to swim and snorkel all year long. Fishing is also popular here—you can troll for largemouth bass in the freshwater bay or cruise into the Gulf of Mexico to catch grouper and snapper.

Crystal River is one of the best places in the world to see manatees in the winter months, when more than 400 West Indian manatees migrate to the warm waters of Kings Bay. You can even swim with the gentle giants on snorkeling or diving excursions; they can be arranged through your hotel or a local dive shop. You can see deer, tortoises, and wading birds up close at Crystal River Preserve State Park on several miles of hiking and biking trails, too.
