High tourist season in the area is January to March, when you can see the visiting manatees – they come to winter here in warm pockets of water created by natural springs. You can even dive to see manatees in the Crystal River Manatee Dive tour. But you can find the live mermaids too (no drinking necessary) – at the Weeki Wachee Springs Waterpark.
