What a treat!
We expected to either swim in a crystal clear spring-fed river OR see manatees in the wild.
Normally, park staff keep people out of the water when Manatees arrive in the Fall.
Manatees were present in the swim area while we were swimming. What a treat to see thes docile animals up close.
A caution: It is against Florida law to harass manatees. Even if the manatees approach you, you could subject to fine if you touch manatees or follow them.
Few people ver get to see manatees in the wild, so whether you are in the water or on the public overlooks, this park can be wonderful to visit.
