Three Sisters is famous for it’s clear water and the hundreds of manatees that gather there in the winter. It is highly popular all year around for kayaking and swimming, especially for photography since there is no other place with equal water clarity in Kings Bay. Unfortunately, the manatees and people have increased to such a point that ever changing restrictions are being put in place as the city of Crystal River and Fish and Wildlife come to terms with how to sustain manatee safety and tourism. This FAQ will be updated when we are given further information on regulations. For now, Three Sisters will be closed when temperatures are near freezing, or manatee counts are so high the small headsprings cannot sustain people and manatees. This will be determined by the Fish and Wildlife on a daily basis. Our tours are simply routed to other parts of Kings Bay.
