- Crystal River is lucky to have a group of approximately 80 manatees that stay all year round. During the colder months, an additional 300 more join them. The constant 72-degree (F) temperature of the spring-fed river and abundance of underwater plant life make it the perfect habitat for the manatees.
- The manatees in Crystal River are wild animals and, as such, you are not guaranteed interaction. However, your expert tour guides will do everything they can to make this happen.
