I have friends that are going to have a few down days and they would like to see some of the natural springs when they go. Ive looked and it seems there are a ton. Just wondering if any come more recommended than others. It should be mentioned that they won't be there until January and I know that changes things a bit. I thought that I saw something about the Manatees migrating into the springs that time of year?? They also were thinking about Cocoa or Daytona beach as well so any recs there?? They dont want to do any other parks etc since they are already booked and paid for all of that.

On google maps they gave roughly 1.5 hrs for each (give or take 20 minutes) ....is that not correct?

You mean the beaches? Yes 1.5-2 hours depending on traffic! I have been to Cocoa Beach...nice to see Cape Canaveral in the distance too! Maybe be lucky enough to see a SpaceX launch!!!!

I know nothing about this company, but they offer both swim with manatee and also a boat tour of the river/springs. It could very well be too cold for swimming in January!
