Paddle To The Largest Gathering Of West Indian Manatees In North America Hiding Along The Crystal River In Florida
Anyone familiar with Florida manatees likely already knows that these gentle giants tend to make our warm waters home for the winter every year. While you can head out on canals and into nearby rivers to see for yourself these beautiful, slow-moving creatures, we have a place that you’ll surely spot a sea cow…or a few hundred. During the winter months, Crystal River becomes home to over 300 manatees, making it the largest gathering of West Indian manatees in North America. Ready to take a paddle to see for yourself?
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
