Swimming with the Manatees - Florida... As manatees can't survive in water below 60 degrees, they migrate to Kings Bay and the adjacent rivers every winter, which are an average 72 degrees all year round. So from November through March 2012, you can head to Crystal River, which is 70 miles north of Tampa, where it is the epicenter of manatee-watching, and go frolicking with these giant but affectionate creatures!

Swimming with Manatees (USA). 'These lumbering, intelligent creatures seek Florida’s warm-water springs and rivers each winter, and many places offer the chance to snorkel beside them as they chew sea grass and nuzzle their children. Top of the list, though, is Kings Bay, near Crystal River on the Gulf Coast, where upwards of 500 may gather on a cold January day.'
