Snorkled here. We were in search of manatees; however, in the summer there are very few here. The river itself was beautiful.

We went there with our manatee tour. The water is so clear. You could see while snorkeling which is different than in the actual river. The water is very cold so be prepared. We were very lucky to see a couple manatees swim in and out of the spring and got some great underwater photos. This was one of the... More

Take the boat ride tour. They can tell you about it all along the way and back. Sit in the shade and be comfy. It is worthy.

Even though we were disappointed not to see any Manatees in the three sisters springs we enjoyed the warm spring waters and well worth a snorkel

What amazing beauty - so cool watching the sand bubble in the crystal clear water under your toes. Entering from Crystal River, the current going into 3 Sisters was crazy, and it was pretty fun watching the people that didn't hold on, to go whisking back past you towards the river... :-) We could have easily spent a couple hours...

It was so clear and a beautiful area. In April the manatees weren't in the area, however in the winter, there are hundreds. It's a refreshing place to take a swim.
