Immerse yourself in a spring and your breath will be taken away, first by the chilly waters and then by the incredible array of fish and turtles that you will see. Florida's cool spring waters provide quick relief during the sweltering summer for local residents as well as visitors from afar. Beneath the surface, springs also support one of the most unique and diverse freshwater ecosystems in North America. With only a mask, snorkel, and fins, you can discover this world for yourself, seeing fish up close, unique underwater plants, and, maybe, even a manatee.
