Blue Spring Park... any experiences?

We've just heard about this place, offering canoes and kayaks in addition to swimming and the possibility of seeing wild manatees. Sounds like a great place for a few hours down time time mid holiday to recharge, has anyone been?

We致e been, many years ago. Brilliant place saw lots of manatees up close - it was in February when they move to the warmer water of the springs.

yes great day out, not sure when you are going but manatees only come in to the springs during the winter months typically November till March when the waters are warmer.

We have been the last 4 years in the last 2 weeks of August and manatees have been there every time.

It's a great place to visit.

If you go, try the St Johns River cruise. A two hour boat trip up and down the river. You'll see more wildlife and birds than anywhere else.

Thanks for your replies folks, this is looking like a definite! Crossing our fingers for spotting a manatee or two 🤞
