The gentle giants of the Florida waters.The Florida Manatee is a unique creature native to the Florida gulf waters around the Nature Coast and the Crystal River area. The West Indian Manatee (Trichechus manatus) is the largest surviving member of the aquatic mammal order Sirenia. The best time for viewing manatees in the Crystal River is during the winter months when the gulf temperatures drop below 68 degrees. Manatees make their way up the river to be near the warmth of the natural springs of the river.

You can see Manatees all year round in the Crystal river, they are just more of them during the colder months.
