Manatee Tours - Swimming with Manatees - Manatee Snorkeling Trips - Manatee Diving Tours:
Crystal River Florida Manatees in Citrus County Fl. are very passive and loving creatures. Crystal River and Homosassa have a year round population of Florida Manatees. They are usually around Kings Bay and Three Sisters Springs. Crystal River and Homosassa Springs are known as the homes of the largest herds of wintering Manatees that enjoy the protection of the Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge. There is a resident herd year round but as the Manatees seek warmer water between October and March, the opportunity for Manatee viewing and “close up” scuba or snorkel encounters increases during these months. Do not miss your chance to see the Manatees of Crystal River and Homosassa Florida.

Fishing:
Citrus County is one of the prime fishing spots within the state of Florida having pristine and productive estuaries. Our Gulf of Mexico coastline is famous for spotted sea trout, redfish, cobia (seasonal), grouper, spanish mackarel, sheephead, shark, black drum, jack crevell, bluefish, and tarpon. In 1993 the world record tarpon was caught right here. When it comes to fresh water fishing Citrus and surrounding counties have it all. Lake Tsala Apopka, Lake Rousseau and the Withlacoochee River offer outstanding fresh water fishing for large mouth bass, blue gills, stump knockers, and brem. Fish from the Gulf of Mexico from piers, buy boat, or local fishing guides will bring you directly to the reefs, grass beds and flats. Public boat ramps provide easy access to all of its major waterways. We are an excellent source of information on bait shops, boat ramps and can book you or your group with one of the many fishing guides right from our center.
