We kayaked to the mouth of Three Sisters Springs, which looked beautiful. We did not see any manatees because it was too warm & they were out in the bay/gulf. Pretty area to kayak. If you want to see the springs before March 31 you...More

The springs are not a huge place but really pretty. We were hoping to see manatees but just our luck that day there were none, the following day they reported manatees were there 😢.

This is a wildlife refuge with some crystal clear water, nice walking paths and bridges. Even got to see a manatee in the spring on the day we were there.

Absolutely stunning place to go snorkeling. Unfortunately the day we came here the manatee decided to move further round to a less clear stretch of river but we still managed to see them. This section of the river was perfect thought. I saw a turtle...More

I loved snorkeling at the Three Sisters Springs. We saw a manatee sleeping by the Pretty Sister and I snorkeled over the Big Sister. I would come back again to share with family and friends. It was pretty, peaceful, and a nature's wonder.

Full filled a bucket list by swimming/snorkeling with the Manatees in March at this beautiful freshwater spring near Crystal River, FL. If the conditions are right, (winter/cool temps) you should have the ability to see dozens of Manatees enjoying the constant warm temps of the...More

It was too crowded with people swimming around, I felt sorry for the manatees who were just trying to rest.

If you try to drive to the park, you'll be turned away. There is no parking or car access. You either need to walk, or pay $15 for trolley access from the visitor's center on the main highway through town. That said, the park is...More

There is no where to camp there if you are speaking of the springs. There is probably a campground in CR. Everything is really close and convenient. Hope this helps

You can swim with the manatees, however there are strict rules about "touching or interfering" with them. There are State of Florida Fish and Wlidlife Officers monitoring the "manatee holes." Swimming with them is usually... More
