Manatee Encounter

Journey with us to Blue Springs State Park, winter home to one of Florida’s largest populations of Manatee. On most days we witness hundreds relaxing in the spring alone. We will observe from a distance as our Florida Master Naturalist introduces us all to the flora and fauna that make up this wild area.

“Manatee at Blue Springs”

Wow! Wonderful morning on the St. John's River, we saw lots of manatees at the mouth of the springs. And in the river. A couple came up close to our yaks. Todd is a great tour guide, pointing out birds, Gators sunning on the banks of the river. Beautiful scenery, flowers, Totally awesome. Thanks Todd for a great Florida adventure.

“We had a blast. Great tour guide!”

If you enjoy water, wildlife, dolphins this is for you. Beginners are okay here. This is a leisurely trip that will keep you looking for more. The glowing fish, water movement, and dolphins! So beautiful under the stars. Will come again!
