The great manatee migration is underway at Blue Spring State Park in Orange City, Florida. During cooler months, hundreds of sea cows seek refuge in the constant 72-degree waters. If you’re lucky, like on the day of our visit, you might even get to see baby manatees hopping a free ride on their mom!

These large gentle creatures are truly a sight to behold and we’re so happy to see them being protected by the state of Florida.
