ABOUT THREE SISTERS SPRINGS
In Crystal River, Florida, there is a well-known tourist attraction called Three Sisters Springs. A variety of species, including manatees, call this collection of three freshwater springs, which are tethered to the Crystal River, home. The springs are well-known for having waters that are incredibly pure and are great for kayaking, swimming, and snorkeling.
The West Indian manatee, a local species of marine mammal, uses Three Sisters Springs as a crucial winter haven. In order to take advantage of the warm water, which is a consistent 72 degrees Fahrenheit all year round, the manatees move to the springs during the colder months.
The US Fish and Wildlife Service oversees the Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge, where the springs are situated. Alligators, birds, and fish are just a few of the various natural species that call the refuge home.
Three Sisters Springs is a well-known vacation spot that draws tourists from all over the world. It is accessible to the general public all year long, however in order to protect manatees, access to the springs is limited from November 15 to March 31. Visitors can still see the manatees at this season from designated viewing places and can take part in educational programs and guided tours.
