Though we saw few manatees in this 90+ degree day, the St. John's River Cruise and the swimming made it the best spot for a family. An inexpensive wonderful place for a picnic. This is definitely my happy place!

A wonderful experience, we took the 2 hour boat tour and were granted a look of the Manatees, all types of birds, alligators, and flora. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and visitor friendly. After the ride we walked the grounds of the springs and watched others tube down the springs. I would strongly recommend this adventure to anyone visiting central... More

This is a very nice park that is chock full of manatees when it's cold, 300+ on a good day! There is also a boat tour you can take or rent canoes or kayaks to explore on your own. They do not allow swimming with the manatees which I would love but am completely in favor of the policy. From... More

This place is so beautiful it feels like you are on a movie set. I took photos last year during our visit with my cell phone and they looked Photoshopped.

Wonderful spot to spend the day. You float down the beautiful "Blue Springs". The current was strong. Watch out for fallen trees. But this is a great attraction. We took our 8 year old grandson, who loved it. He had a snorkel and mask, which I recommend. At the head of the springs is a sandy beach and a diving... More

My friend and I visited Blue Springs March 25, 2015. This is a place that attracts a lot of families, so if you don't mind being around a bunch of kids this place is good. Management was kind. Sucks that no pets are allowed, but I understand. Overall good visit.

Visited in February on a much needed break day from the theme parks. It was a Saturday so it was quite crowded. We waited about 1/2 hour to get in to the park. I'd recommend going early in order to minimize your wait. On the day we went, there were approximately 300+ manatees. Was great for the kids to see... More

I am a Floridian so I got addicted to springs early in life. My family has been going to blue springs for 30 years. Quite frankly, the staff at this location is rude and inflexible and has been for the entire time we have gone there, nevertheless, we are addicted. It is quite expensive in that you will pay $10...

Wrong information on this page. Swimming only. $10 per person. People are very nice and will let you look at the spring for free for a few minutes. She said it gets very busy in the summer. Camping is available too.

For six dollars I could not have had a better time. It was a clear day. The crowd was reasonable in size. We made our way along an elevated walkway and saw easily 80 young and old manatees cruising and feeding in the clear water surrounded by big fish. There was a nice walk involved and many different spots to... More
