This area is home to over 41 named springs, including the crown jewel of the Crystal River National Wildlife refuge, Three Sisters Springs. These springs have been featured in both the National Geographic Magazine and the Discovery Channel's North America Series. The Bay is also home to the Florida West Indian Manatee. Even in the summer there can be as many as 50-70 manatees in the bay, with winter time numbers being over 600 at times!
