Join us on a 2 day Manatee experience in the beautiful clear waters of Chassahowitzka & Three Sisters Springs
Watching these gracful amazing creatures in their natural habitat is a gift of nature that simplifies, relaxes and astonishes the senses. It's hard not to quiet oneself, and simply connect to this mermaid of peace. Alligators themselves, allow them to pass, in the spirit of nature's way.
