Where can I go to see manatees?

Posted December 24, 2006
If you want to see manatees in the wild, the best time to do so is now -- during the cold winter months -- when these gentle mammals leave the cool ocean for the warmer water of spring-fed streams and rivers. Three of the most popular places to view sea cows are Crystal River and Homosassa Springs State Wildlife Park in Citrus County and Blue Spring State Park in Volusia County. Another location, the Manatee Observation & Education Center in Fort Pierce, offers year-round opportunities to learn about and see manatees in their natural setting.
