The Springs are absolutely gorgeous! The water is crystal clear, so many manatees. There is a boardwalk around the Springs. There are volunteers stationed all around to explain things to you and answer your questions. They are all very friendly and knowledgable. It is also very peaceful. You are able to swim with the manatees here also.

Perfect place to relax in the beauty of clear refreshing water. There was a manatee volunteer present who was providing education to all regarding marine life and the habitat! We will definitely be back!

We rented a kayak to go to Three Sisters Springs and it was awesome. We saw a manatee and the water is so clear you can see everything. Amazing place to visit.

I have never seen such a beautiful spot. Nestled right off Kings Bay. I could have stayed there all day.

We drove 2 1/2 hrs from the east coast to visit these springs. This set-up is confusing as they offer a Trolley Ride from City Hall inside Crystal River to this Spring. They do not allow parking inside the spring area (yet there were cars parked there!) We drove directly to the Springs entrance where we were greeted and told... More

The water here is crystal clear! No filter needed! It is like something from a dream! We were lucky and there were many manatees taking refuge in the warm waters. I could spend all day there!

Laid-back fun. The Crystal River was beautiful and I even jumped in where you were allowed to swim! A little hiking path in the woods was good to stretch the legs. We enjoyed the beautiful scenery there.

We traveled in the month of April, which is considered off-season. Our entrance fee was$7.50each. Children six and under are free. There's a beautiful little downtown area with cute shops and a trolley that brings you to the three sisters springs. If you're lucky, there's a volunteer on the boardwalk that will talk you through what you're looking at, what... More

This is an attractive place to visit, and it can rate four stars or five stars depending on when you visit. It's up to the manatees. When they are numerous, I can see how this would be a five star attraction. The manatees generally congregate in the springs and surrounding waters during the winter months because of the uniformly warmer... More
