      One of several outfitters offering gear for and access to the Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge, Crystal River Kayak offers superb service at a reasonable rate and the most advantageous of launch sites, particularly if you're there to swim with or view manatees. They provide kayaks, canoes or stand up paddle boards, as well as wet suits, snorkels and masks if you don't have your own. You can take a tour or go out on your own for one to four hours. They also operate a dive center just across the road, offering scuba tours, gear and training.

      If you go:
      Open every day, all year. Best time to view manatees is November through April, and try to go out at low tide.
