Swimming & Canoeing with the Manatees
For an adventure you’ll never forget, try canoeing / kayaking and swimming with the manatees! If you come to Manatee Springs State Park during the right time of year, you can do that. The springs keeps the water above 70 degrees year-round, so in the winter, the manatees find their way up to the springs to keep warm. You can rent a canoe or kayak to roam around the springs as it enters the Suwanee River. Explore the banks for baby alligators, turtles, snakes, birds… and of course in the springs our friendly sea cows, the manatees.
