We did a tour of the three sisters springs. There is no on site parking, and the trail isn’t very clear, you have to cut across some grass to get to it. No washrooms or anywhere to get a drink. The springs were beautiful and...More

We went during September so there aren't any manatee that go into the springs, HOWEVER it is still an awesome place to kayak to and swim!!! You don't need a mask or snorkel. I swam under water with my eyes open and could see everything...More

We canoed from a local marina and it looked close on the GPS so we paddled on over.. Worth the trip. It's tucked away in an unsuspecting area. We canoed through pipes set to keep out boats etc.. and found this beautiful treasure.

We rented canoes to explore Three Sisters Springs and were rewarded with manatees surfacing right next to us. The water was crystal clear. The canals are easy to navigate and we paddled over to the large island, observed birds and tons of other wildlife. Fun...More

We went here on a paddle trip with our manatee tour. Three Sisters Springs was breathtaking! Can’t wait to come back. Family memories we will never forget for sure!

You can only get there by boat - You have to put in at a public park and then paddle 30 minutes to get to the springs which are small and crowded. Cannot put in at 3 sisters park directly. Pretty - not much to...More

We boated up to the entrance of the springs and swam across the river to the springs. Clear and cool water was enough to get your attention. Lots of boats, kayaks, paddle boards, canoes to be mindful of, but fun, exciting and rewarding. Swim up...More

Yes there is a boardwalk around the springs. The only sticking point is that the boardwalk is only accessible from the land side. You have to drive, walk or bike to the boardwalk park via the street. Also the boardwalk is... More
