I’ve lived in Florida basically my whole life and one thing that always amazes me is how many fun adventures this state has to offer! It truly is a tropical paradise with a lot of fun adventures in every corner and location. One of Florida’s hidden treasures I wanted to share with you all is ‘Swimming With The Manatees In Crystal River!’ We recently took the kids and had the best time. We are eager to get back! More about our trip and where we went below!
Florida Vacation Spots
As mentioned, Florida has so many fun places to visit and we sure enjoy visiting them all!
Walt Disney World Family Vacation
We LOVE visiting Disney World with the kids and can even hop on a Disney Cruise right out of our own state too! While we can’t visit now, we sure are eager to get back! You can see our fun last trip HERE when we got to attend the Disney Creator’s event!
The Florida Keys
We just recently visited Marathon, Florida in the Florida keys and it was such a fun trip! We tried to find a responsible way to travel during this Covid-19 pandemic and it was the perfect trip! You can read all about it HERE!
Florida Hidden Treasures: Swimming With The Manatees In Crystal River
Located about 90 minutes north of Tampa there is a special spot called Crystal River. It is here you can swim with the manatees in their natural habitat. The water here in Kings Bay is a consistent 72 degrees year round and makes for the perfect place for these gentle giants to live. This is especially true in the winter when the water in the gulf tends to get colder. This is when you will see many manatees flock to Crystal River for warm waters.
We went with Sea Daddy’s In Crystal River and had a great experience! I highly recommend them if you’re taking the trip!
Below is a video of our adventure!! I hope you enjoy it!
