Manatees Manatees every where-loved seeing these super cool animals but also provided them with their own space! Thes river is cyrstal blue and is a magical place to snorkel. It is a very loved destinastion with many users including kayakers, boaters, snorklers, and divers.

Found this place by accident and spend the whole day there. If you go to Crystal Spring and you miss this place, you haven't really seen Crystal Springs!

The entire park was great but when we were able to see manatees playing just outside the park that we could watch from the observation dock. We even got to see a couple of VERY young babies!

The real Florida. Wonderful volunteer guides in family friendly environment that takes you back to the Florida of years past.

Take the time to drive through the salt marshes to the point. The views are so expansive and there are numerous opportunities to park and view the area on raised boardwalks.
