Swimming with manatees - as manatees can't survive in water below 60ºF, they migrate to Kings Bay and the adjacent rivers every winter, which are an average 72ºF all year round. So from November through March, you can head to Crystal River, 70 miles north of Tampa, where the epicenter of manatee-watching is, and go frolicking with these giant but affectionate creatures!

Triggerfish are members of the Balistidae family, which includes 40 species in 11 genera that inhabit coral reefs in the Atlantic, the Indian, and the Pacific Oceans. They are more common to divers than to anglers, although some are occasionally caught incidentally, and they have been associated with poisoning.
