Reflections at Manatee Springs

A first magnitude spring, over 100 million gallons of water gush forth daily at Manatee Springs. In winter, manatees swim upriver to spend the night in warm waters of the headspring.

Popular for snorkeling and scuba diving, the headwaters of the spring are also a great spot for swimming. The spring run forms a sparkling stream that meanders through hardwood wetlands to the Suwanee River.

 

In this picture, the reflections are very distorted, due to the fast current of the water in the run from the spring which gushes a few feet from where that picture was taken
