Three Sisters Springs, the Winter Home of the Manatees

located in Crystal River, Florida!


Three Sisters Springs is an important habitat for the Florida manatee from mid-November until late March. These natural springs stay a constant temperature of 72 deg Fahrenheit (22 C). In the winter, the temperature of the Gulf of Mexico will decrease and manatees will migrate into the springs to stay warm. You can visit Three Sisters Springs by land or by water. If you would like to see the springs by land, there is a boardwalk and 57 acre refuge with nature trails. If you would like to visit by water, you can snorkel/swim by launching a boat or paddle craft on Kings Bay. Please click on the icons for more info.
