We were there in mid-June and it was beautiful. We are from Florida and knew not to expect manatees. We went to see the beauty of the crystal springs and it did not disappoint. We took the trolley tour and walked the boardwalk around the...More

Take a local tour and stay away. Here is only a board walk that has cameras on it and a bunch of volunteers that tell you how to look at the manatees. This is a closed environment! Take a local tour were you can swim...More

1st and foremost the Spring is beautiful. Last and not least - what an abuse of natural resources for profit. There are volunteers yelling and screaming at people, there are people posing as Fish and Wildlife officers that are clearly not, there are more tourist...More

An absolutely gorgeous kayaking trip. Just a bit small. The water is beautifully clear, but is a bit cold, you’ll warm up quickly if you swim around. I’d recommend going during the week as it’s a very small area and gets packed fast!

Very pretty! Bring snorkel gear if you can. It was so clear. If you can go when it's not super crowded it's better. We saw a manatee on the way in.

Since the change in the weather there were no manatees. The bay and Gulf are much warmer then the springs. I was sad to see that the springs had been commercialized with boardwalks and an entrance fee. Years ago you could only go by boat...More

Definite must-see on crystal river. My boyfriend and I snorkeled to each spring and loved every minute of it. Kayaking looked fun too. Crystal-clear water and some fish! Happy we came.

sorry for the delay in responding. I don't think the springs is open to fishing, however, the springs are part of river which is not restricted.
