Crystal River Watersports is delighted to be located near the Crystal River Archaeology Park and the Crystal River Preserve State Park. The boat ride taking our guests to Kings Bay passes through these Parks and gives our guests the opportunity to see a wide variety of wildlife and natural beauty. These include: otters, dolphins, bald eagles, wild pigs, cormorants, alligators, and numerous other birds. You will also see one of the temple mounds from a pre-Columbian site which served as a ceremonial center for Native Americans for 1,600 years. It is estimated that as many as 7,500 Native Americans may have visited the complex every year, and it was one of the longest continuously occupied sites in Florida.
