Tips from locals
The water is very clear. Beautiful surroundings. Cold water perfect to balance out the hot weather here in Florida. Must bring water shoes because it has a lot of rocks in the water.
This spring is where to see manatees during winter months! Activities include, scuba diving, kayaking, fishing & swimming in constant 73 degree water temperature. Local favorite spring.
There is a natural spring here that runs into the St. John's river. Hundreds of manatees live here in the winter, which are very easy to watch. There is also a great river boat ride you can book, that highlights nature on the river. Hiking trails, picnic area. Swimming in the summer.
Manatees, history, alligators, beautiful clear swimming water. Day trip anyone? Bring a cooler and some suits and do a day trip. You can rent kayaks and canoes, swim with manatees, grill out, catch up on some history, walk the trails and a lot more. Usually $6 per vehicle.
