MANATEE TRIP 2018 Let's Go Play In Florida

Manatee Trip 2018

Let's take a break from winter and go play in Florida.  Time for our annual Manatee Trip!

Every year over President's Day weekend we take one of our most popular trips.  A weekend of fun and diving in Florida.

We start Saturday morning off with the Manatees.  These are probably the most gentle animals on earth.  And they like people.  We'll visit some of the Manatee areas and spend time snorkeling with them and their pups.

After the Manatee we take a break for lunch and then drift dive down Rainbow River.  some find this to be the best part of the trip.  We ride up the river on our boat and then allow the current to carry us effortlessly down the river back to our starting point.  Along the way we'll see turtles, Florida Gar, Anhingas, Cormorants, Herons, Pelicans, and a lot more.

On Sunday we visit Ginnie Springs Resort.  Imagine diving in water so clear you can't see it.  That's Ginnie Springs.  Dive Ginnie Spring, Devil's Eye, Devil's Ear, and more.  You can drift down the Santa Fe from one set of springs to another.
