Manatee Season runs from
November 15th through March 31st!
Manatee Season runs from November 15th through Match 31st each year. It is customary to wear a wetsuit, snorkel, and mask when swimming with the manatees. The wetsuits help keep you buoyant, which makes it easier to float in the resting position while swimming with manatees. The springs are a constant 72F or 21C, so the wetsuits also assist you in staying warm. Without the wetsuits, mask, and snorkel, you are at risk of accidentally harming or harassing a manatee. This can be penalized fines up to $100,000 or up to 1 year in jail. Three Sisters Springs is closed to all vessels during Manatee Season but is occasionally open to swimmers during these times. When the springs are open for swimming, you are allowed to tie up the warning ropes outside of the springs and swim in. This is a daily decision and is not guaranteed ahead of time and can be closed or open at any random time. More updated information is available online with Three Sister Springs Information Center.
