  • Our experience was excellent. We lucked out and saw plenty of manatees. The park staff were wonderful and the springs are beautifully maintained.

  • This was one of the biggest rip- offs I've experienced. 17.00 per person at senior rates. A trolley took us to the park. Dropped us at a boardwalk that took 20 miminutes to walk. We saw manatees...

  • Reviews- based on the pictures I saw online...people are swimming & snorkeling. It's $7.50 a person. There are many restrictions at this park - there is no parking inside, 2 tour guides with walkie talkies to make sure u leave at 4:30. There is NO SWIMMING!! Do not go here. Don't let the pictures of people online mislead u. Go through Hunter's Creek instead.
  • Love it!! Gorgeous place while boating swim with the manattees. Beautiful, peaceful filled w/ nature. The springs would make a perfect movie set
  • Absolutely beautiful! The attendants need to take a chill pill and some of the people need to stop reminding everyone every second that there is a manatee nearby, but other than that, absolutely breath taking!
  • Did the tour of the springs which was very nice. If we had more time we would have gone into the springs. The springs was very beautiful and everywhere was a photo opportunity.
  • Lovely spring. Be mindful that if you take the trolley to the boardwalk you cannot swim in the spring. There is no water access from the land and there is no land access from the water. Swimming is permitted in the spring, but you have to enter the spring on your own from the river. There are two main trails at the park and a boardwalk trail. The boardwalk trail offers scenic views of the springs. Take advantage of all that the ticket offers which includes a trolley ride into town and to Hunter Spring Park where swimming is permitted. The trolley ride is only about 3 minutes from the parking lot. The driver was a very sweet man who helped us in and out of the bus. Also, be sure to check out Little Springs Park right next to the main parking lot.
