There’s no better place than Florida to see the slow-moving peaceful marine beasts known as manatees. In a special for USA Today, writer Susan Barnes gives a first-hand account of her experience with these majestic creatures, so you’ll know where to see them on your next visit to Beso Del Sol Resort.
Florida’s state marine mammal, the manatee sure is cute. These gentle giants known as sea cows meander through Florida’s warm waters in the winter months. It’s not uncommon to spot one off the pool deck, fishing pier or boat docks of Beso Del Sol Resort in Florida.
The winter home for many manatees is just down the road a piece from Beso Del Sol—in Tarpon Springs at the Spring Bayou. Located in beautiful Craig Park, the natural spring-fed bayou is the place these gentle giants come to find warmth in the winter.
