CRYSTAL RIVER, Fla. — Many might find the dark limiting when I comes to outdoor adventures, but one experience on the waters of Crystal River is best in the pitch black.
Here are five things to know about night crab fishing at Crystal River before visiting:
1. CRYSTAL RIVER
The beautiful waters of Crystal River are known for their Three Sisters Spring, manatee tours, and kayaking adventures, but you can also traverse these waters at night to search for something delicious.
