DREAMSCAPES SPRING/SUMMER 2017 58 TRAVEL GALLERY >> BY CYNTHIA DAVID DS K nown as the "Manatee Capital of the World," Crystal River, Florida, is the only place in the world where you can legally swim with manatees—a bucket-list experience you do not want to miss. It is home to dozens of springs, which serve as warm havens to the manatees, especially during the winter months. Bordering the Gulf of Mexico to the west, Crystal River is the perfect place for angling adventures year-round. Between June and September, the area is also one of Florida's top destinations for scalloping. Swimmers float in warm 22 C water less than two metres deep looking for scallops hidden in swaying sea grass and surrounded by colourful subtropical fish, seahorses, sponges and corals. And, of course, there are the beaches and natural scenery.
