This trail is perfect. It is a paved surface with many beautiful views of the old barge canal, the gorgeous plants and trees and many birds. We spotted an eagle and a osprey nest. There are covered pavilions along the trail for fishing and picnicking. We rode our bikes but there were others walking. I only wish it was a longer ride!

The trip is a river tour departing from the historic Izaak Walton Lodge, down the Withlacoochee River to the Gulf of Mexico returning by a small tributary making it a seven mile loop. Flora, fauna will be identified along with the history of the area. The scenery is all wilderness, the way Florida was in the past. We will also share photographs dating back to the 1800's of the largest phosphate shipping operation on the west coast of Florida during that time. You will enjoy all of this while riding in our clean, comfortable covered boats with US Coast Guard certified Captains. Reservations highly recommended.
Went with my stepdaughter/friend for a half day fishing trip and had a blast!!! Capt. Rick is very professional and helpful, especially since I'm not very experienced. Safety is important to him and he explains every aspect of his boat before moving out on the...MoreThank you for the nice review. Sorry it took me a while to respond, I thought I did before now. It was a great trip with you ladies and I probably enjoyed it as much as you did. Merry Christmas, Capt. Rick

Has a viewing tower you can walk up and designated trail areas.
Visitors should be aware that recent (May 2014) forest clearing has dramatically altered the landscape, and, ultimately, the claim that this is an undisturbed piece of Florida. Fortunately, the tower area has not been affected, but the board walk and surrounding trails no longer have the same appeal as we had experienced on previous visits. If I had reviewed this before, I would have given it 5 stars plus. Now, it barely rates three stars. My two newly attached photos show what it looks like now.

Great day fishing. Eric immediately took us to a great spot. I was better at catching rock ‘fish’, but Eric brought them in non stop and let me bring a few in for him. I’m stubborn, so I kept trying to set the hook to catch those sheeps heads. We also caught sea trout and red drum, plus a few shark. Great company. Great skipper. Great stories. Great day. Highly recommended!

If you want the best, most relaxing and fun day in your vacation then call captain Rick! We caught fish all day long and never had to touch one. Rick does all the work and fillets them up for you at the end of the day.

Stayed at the Plantation Inn, kayaks all over, swam with the manatees, visited three sister springs, just an awesome area with so much to do.

Come have an opportunity to see the great West Indian Manatee in the crystal clear springs at the Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge!
Nice set up. Took boat into the area from the main entrance. Enjoyable view, animals. The park has numerous areas, the manatees are always available, a rhino, and the traditional Florida creatures, snakes, pink flamingos, to name a few. Enjoyable afternoon. Like most Florida attractions, very expensive. This one at least was a reasonable presentation.

I have been following Three Sister Springs on Instagram/Twitter for weeks to make sure the Manatees were still in the Springs (something that really helped out!). We went the end of March (March 26) and got pretty lucky as far as the Manatees still being in the Springs, with about 50 visible. There was plenty of room to look without being too overcrowded or feeling overwhelmed by so many people. There was plenty of space to see everything.
The address for the Springs (601 Three Sisters Springs Trail) will take you to the entrance of the Springs, BUT, there is NO PUBLIC PARKING THERE! There is a gate and you will not be able to get through to park. We were advised by the employee that parking around this area is park at your own risk & we didn't want to risk being towed.
We ended up parking at the Three Sister Springs Visitor center (123 NW US Highway 19) and taking the trolley tour over. To get here, it's easier to turn onto 1st Ave and park in the Parking lot. We followed Google directions and turned down 2nd, which was a Police department (the visitor center is on the other side of the building). The trolley stops at the Visitor center stops approximately every 20 minutes and will take you on a small tour through Crystal River and will drop you off right at the entrance to the Boardwalk. Once at the Boardwalk, the trolley will come every 30 minutes. 30 minutes was not long enough to walk the whole boardwalk, the trails and marvel at the animals, so we ended up staying for about an hour.
This was a must on our trip. Unfortunately, we were not prepared to snorkel or do any other water activity, so we just stuck with the boardwalk. Next time we will be snorkeling!

A top archaeological destination for Native American artifacts.
61 acre state park has paved walkways meandering to different Indian shell mounds; stairs going to the top of the highest one. Trees and lawns (stay on trail signs). Museum was closed when we were there. pay for day use. Pre-Columbian, Native American site has burial mounds, temple/platform mounds, a plaza area and a substantial midden. The six-mound complex is one of the longest continuously occupied sites in Florida.

We had a drift dive down the Rainbow River planned and needed somewhere to spend 3 hours from the time we checked out of our hotel room until we were supposed to check in at the dive shop. For a $5 parking fee my dive buddy and I were able to sit in the shade drinking soda, reading while watching manatees and people. There is a beach, launching for small boats and PWC as well as restrooms.
