Three Sister's Springs


Three Sisters Springs is often described as "An Environmental Jewel", a blue oasis of clear and pristine ground water, located in the heart of Crystal River, Florida. Three Sisters Springs is a complex of three spring areas, with vents, and sand boils that help feed Kings Bay, the headwaters of the Crystal River. These springs that form the Three Sisters complex also constitute one of the most important natural warm-water refuges for the endangered Florida Manatee. The mouth of the Three Sisters Springs run is gated by concrete posts to prevent boat access; only snorkelers, canoe’s, and kayakers may enter the springs. Three Sisters Springs, and the outer sanctuaries, provide a safe haven for the Florida manatees. On a cold day in January 2011, a federal biologist counted more than 200 manatees in Three Sisters Springs and the outer sanctuaries. Three Sisters springs remain at a constant temperature of 72 degrees, offering an ideal setting for manatees seeking shelter from the cold Gulf of Mexico waters.

For those who do not venture out in wetsuits and snorkel gear to swim with the manatees, observers will have an opportunity to get an up close look at the manatees from the boardwalk at Three Sisters Springs. The boardwalk is open for tours daily from 10:30 AM to 3:30 PM from November 15th until March 31st.

For more information on the boardwalk viewing platform please visit www.VisitThreeSisters.comFor those of you who would enjoy an up close and personal encounter to swim with the manatees, River Ventures Manatee Tour Center is located just steps outside the Three Sisters property on the Northeast corner of Kings Bay Drive and Cutler Spur Blvd. River Ventures provides you with everything you need for the manatee swim tour.
