Chassowitzka River:
 The Chassowitzka River is an unspoiled estuarine habitat along Florida's west coast that serves as important breeding and feeding ground for marine life. Nine miles long from the head of the springs to the Gulf of Mexico the shallow bays support an abundant growth of muskgrass which provides food for various birds and the endangered manatee.
Crystal River:
Six hundred million gallons of fresh water flow daily from more than thirty natural springs. The temperature of the water flowing from the springs remains a constant 72 degrees.
Homosassa River:
The river starts at the main spring and runs eight miles to the Gulf of Mexico.
Rainbow River:
This pristine stream produces up to 500 million gallons of pure water each day, and flows from the many springs that form this aquarium like river.
Withlacoochee River:
On the northern and eastern borders of Citrus County, the Withlacoochee River presents 45 miles of riverfront beauty and recreational opportunities. Northeast of Inverness, the long, lazy Withlacoochee helps refresh the Tsala Apopka chain of lakes, a 23,000 acre bass-rich playground for fisherman and a wetland home for a dozen species of bird and mammal considered rare elsewhere in America.
