Winter Travel – Reasons to visit Florida during the Winter
Bragging Season: Winter in Florida is what we like to call “bragging season.” When the rest of the country is experiencing bitter cold and staying indoors, Floridians and visitors are enjoying warm weather and getting out and about for fun and adventure.
The best part about winter in Florida is that you still get to enjoy the great outdoors. From hiking and biking to swimming with Manatees and air-boating through the Everglades, Florida offers a year-round opportunity to get in touch with nature.
Winter months are the prime time to see and swim with Manatees, also known as sea cows. During prime manatee viewing season, which usually runs from Oct.1-Mar. 31 depending on temperatures, guests will experience the truly unique travel adventure of swimming among hundreds of manatees as they play eat, and socialize with one another.
Crystal River is the only location in North America where you can legally swim with Manatees. Starting at $274 for two guests, the one-night Swim with the Manatees package* includes:
Accommodations in a garden view room
Manatee snorkeling tour for two from the Plantation Adventure Center with all equipment needed (mask, snorkel and wetsuit).
Breakfast for two at West 82⁰ Bar & Grill
Welcome bag with plush manatee toy
