“If you're visiting from July 1 through Sept. 24, you might want to go scalloping in the Gulf. It's a lot of fun to search the eel grasses for these tasty critters! There are plenty of local charters who will take you out snorkeling for the day. Most will shuck your catch at the end of the day. Then you can grill them up later for dinner. Some local restaurants will cook them for you as well.”

Park
“This park provides a lovely boardwalk around Three Sisters Springs to view the manatees from above. The manatee season at Crystal River NWR begins in mid-November and ends in late March. During the winter months, manatees come to the springs to conserve the energy necessary to survive the cold Gulf waters. Sometimes hundreds will gather there to stay warm. During Spring and Summer, you may or may not see any manatees there. ”

“Kayak and pontoon boat rental within walking distance of the house. Nice eco-tours if you want to get out on the water but not IN it! Also have manatee tours where you can "swim" with the manatees!”
