All of the rangers, and I mean ALL, are very friendly. The boat trip is a must! A lazy cruise around the spring - if the weather is right, you'll see manatees (we saw 6!), alligators and a large variety of birds. The Ranger leading the tour was extremely knowledgeable about the inhabitants and the history of the springs. Including some of the 'fun facts' about the movies filmed there. Don't miss it - and at $8 for about 1 hour, great value! Come prepared to swim, jump off the tower and have a bite to eat at the Lodge (we didn't this time, but the food has always been good).

Amazed by the flat bottom river boat tour. Maria, park ranger, gave an excellent tour of wild life on the river. Birds, alligators, and more. Over an hour of nature and river life. Very cool.

Another unique Florida Park. Great Spring area for swimming. 69 degrees year round. There is a great boat ride. So much nature to see. Park Rangers are friendly and knowledgeable. There is a nice walking trail.

The 50-minute tour boat ride was magical. Captain John was very knowledge about every bird and animal variety that we spotted. He also added some southern charm and humor. The afternoon was cool - about 60 degrees - and since the spring is a constant 69°, many manatee were gathered around the spring outlet to keep warm. We must have seen 20 or more during the hour, some of which intentionally swam under our boat. (The propellor is in a cage to protect them.) We only saw 3 alligators: they were keeping warm under the water with only their noses and snout showings. In warmer weather, I expect you'd see more gators sunning themselves on the riverbanks.

Highly recommended. And only 8 bucks!

Amazing place! The boat now goes witho tout a glass bottom, but that doesn't matter. Amazing nature! An interesting excursion along the river, many birds, crocodiles, manatees and fish. The guide was amazing and very funny. You can stay overnight at the guesthouse. If I knew that it was so good here, I would spend the night here and not in Tallahassee.
