    Crystal River Paddle, May 10-14

    Crystal River offers a wonderful paddling experience, where you can encounter manatees in their natural habitat. You can explore the Kings Bay area for two days at a relaxed pace, enjoying the scenic views and wildlife. This paddling trip is part of the cruising group's boating adventure to Crystal River. We have reserved four days for this activity, so that both weekend and weekday paddlers can join us. However, be aware that the weekends are very crowded. You can choose to paddle for one or more days, depending on your availability and preference.
