One of the most unique moments of my vacation was a visit to Crystal Springs, Florida. It is the only place in the USA where you can actually swim with manatees! This is something my 13 year old daughter has wanted to do.....forever. We found Captian Mike's Tour and for $10 you can ride on the boat and watch, but for $50 you can don a wet suit an snorkel gear and get in. After 3 different stops, we found some manatees that wanted to play. They swam all around us and rolled on their back for us to scratch their belly! If you ever get a chance to do this, jump in.
