Crystal River's main water sources are nearby natural springs that pump out very clear water and maintain around 72 ° water temperatures year round. Three Sisters Springs is a complex of three spring areas, with many vents and sand boils that help feed Kings Bay, the headwaters of Crystal River. These springs also constitute one of the most important natural warm-water refuges for hundreds upon hundreds of the endangered Florida manatee.

    This was our first Kayak Dayz Meetup. My wife and I were very impressed and loved Crystal River and the Manatees. The worse part of the trip was getting out of the kayak and coming back to the sirens and traffic of Tampa. We look forward to our next kayaking trip.

    The water may be warmer or equal to the air around us on February 9th. Crystal River's main water sources are nearby natural springs that pump out very clear water and maintain around 72 ° water temperatures year round.

    This looks great but being a southerner,,,,I gotta wait til the water warms up a bit!

      Sara, 72 ° is as warm as Florida waters get unless you are in very shallow water on a hot day. As posted, Crystal River's main water sources are nearby natural springs that pump out very clear water and maintain around 72 ° water temperatures year round.

    As I was kayaking around the Eastern states someone had asked me: If I only kayak one place in Florida; what place would it be? So, as my answer I am posting the paddle and swim with the manatees at Crystal River and the springs of the Chassahowitzka river.
