Very enjoyable stop. Planned to stay 2 nights. Ended up staying 2 weeks due to adverse weather. We took the dinghy to see the manatees and had a chance to swim among them. We are over halfway on our Great Loop trip, and I think this was one of our highlight of our trip so far. Jeff, Dominic and all the marina staff were helpful and pleasant. Also, the floating docks are much more convenient than fixed docks, especially with a dog. There was some coastal flooding due to the stormy weather and the fixed docks near us were underwater for awhile. It is also pet friendly. There were lots of places to walk our dog. Pete's Pier Marina has a golf cart they loan to transient boaters, so laundry, groceries and restaurants were accessible. I plan to come back with friends next month to go on the manatee tour. We highly recommend this stop.

Nice stop. Floating Docks, Electric, Water, Bathrooms and Shower. Nicole could not of been more helpful. We took a Manatee tour that started at the Marina, was very informative, saw some Manatee's. We would come here again.

New docks were installed just before Christmas. They are floating. 50 amp power. The reminder will be updated in the next construction period. The marina is a busy place as it is the centre of Manatee viewing tour operators and a busy boat launch. One shower for boaters. No laundry.
Staff are helpful and ready to assist when you are coming in during hours. The marina also provides tide tables which are very important to negotiate you way in and out. Note tide co-efficeint and wind direction as north and east winds reduce the water level even more.
Crystal River itself is a fun stop with some interesting shops and restaurants. The Waterway Guide says manatee tours are a nominal fee - currently are $95 + pp. We took our dinghy around to the springs to drift and had good luck seeing a few.
Fairly long way to shore and grass for dogs. The older dock sections are challenging for smaller dogs as their paws slip between the boards.
