Latest Manatee Sightings

Thursday, 2 February 2023

The river temperature was up another degree to 70.7°F (21.5°C), so almost the same as the spring. The park staff counted 2 manatees, I saw none. Even on the way back down and on the webcam I couldn’t detect any manatees. They must have sneaked out before I got there. Sometimes we look for “flipper drags” on the bottom of the spring run which would be an indication that some manatees were there as they “dragged” their flippers through the sand. I thought I saw some in the upper part of the run, but it could have also been from an alligator or from yesterday. Still a beautiful day at the spring, just without manatees. ~Cora

Support for the Manatee Webcams at Blue Spring State Park was made possible by a donation to Save the Manatee Club as a memorial gift in honor of the late Mrs. Norma Norton, a Florida resident who cared deeply for manatees.

The park has opened the gates to wild manatees, so you can expect to see them on the webcams now. Permanent residents Ariel and Betsy, along with Heinz, Shantay, and Guppy, who are undergoing rehabilitation, are in the paddock area of the park and not on the webcams. At night, or when there are issues with the cameras, we will play highlights of previously recorded webcam footage.
