One of Florida’s natural hidden jewels is more than 700 natural springs sprinkled throughout the state that offer many great activities and fun in its natural environment. Florida’s crystal clear and natural springs not only are perfect for swimming, scuba diving, tubing and kayak or canoe sightseeing but also the springs provide a noteworthy aquarium for all native plants and animals.
Florida Springs act as an outstanding underwater creation with tons of freshwater flowing from the Florida Aquifer. In one solitary visit to a Florida spring, you can reveal species like Manatees, River Otters, Loggerhead Turtles and many of these species you can see right from the nature trail along the spring run. Clean, clear water rolling from the aquifer at a constant 72-degree temperature are the essential things that support the variety of life found in and around a spring.
Discover the fun by fin, foot or paddle but brace yourself for the cool 72-degree water.
