There's all kinds of sweet action on the Blue Spring manatee cam right now


With the recent cold weather, manatees are headed to warmer waters at Blue Spring State Park.

The folks at the Save The Manatee Club have a live stream of the spring that is definitely worth checking out before you make the drive.

If you're having trouble viewing the manatee cam, try it from here. It's also worth noting that in the evening they typically run an edited loop.

But as of right now, things are apparently going off at the springs. Gators, manatee, tarpon, everyone's packing it in.

As of this morning, 133 manatees are currently splashing around at Blue Spring State Park. It's only $6 a car to enter the park, so this might be a great excuse to get out of the house this weekend.
