Conservation measures can produce astounding results. In 1970, two years before Blue Spring State Park was established, researchers tracked 14 manatees in the spring run. By 2005, after years of park improvements and manatee protection efforts, wintering manatee numbers exceeded 200 and by 2018, that number skyrocketed to a record 485.
Besides "sea cows," fish abound in the spring run, and these attract a variety of wading birds, ospreys, eagles and kingfishers. To see the park’s wonders, visitors can hike along the spring run or on the 4.5-mile Pine Island Trail. Visitors can also launch a canoe or kayak (rentals are available at the park) or take a guided river boat cruise.

We came to Blue Spring SP to view the manatees in the spring during the winter. The restrooms were clean. The park is very quiet. You can rent canoes, kayaks, and take a boat tour. There are park rangers giving facts about the manatees throughout the day. This park has a beautiful boardwalk to…
Been coming here since I was a kid and so have the manatees every winter. When the water temps in the St.Johns river drop below 72°F the manatees seek shelter in constant temp of the spring run. Not a ton of hiking available here but a decent 3.5 mile one way trail through Florida scrub and oak…
