And if fishing is your thing, Plantation on Crystal River has you covered. With the resort’s Adventure Center & Dive Shop you can book a family fishing charter for a chance to reel in some largemouth bass, snook, grouper, redfish, and scallops – all of which can be grilled up by the Plantation’s restaurant, The West 82⁰ Grill.
