Swim with Manatees in Florida

I am going to ramble on about the amazing thing our little family just got to do in Florida.  I want to go back and do it again as soon as possible, it was that incredible!

While fishing in Florida a couple of years ago we had a mother and calf swim past our boat and surface near us.  I was pretty excited.  They are enormous gentle creatures.

This winter we planned to go back to Florida and spend some time lower on the Gulf Coast.  Husband wanted to see the Everglades and Daughter wanted a nice beach.  I had the plans all set, hotels booked and a shell of an itinerary.  We would be in Fort Myers Beach, Naples and end around St. Petersburg.

I stumbled on a trip review that said  you could swim with the manatees.

Then I watched a video on Facebook and was determined to make this work three weeks before we traveled.  I read up a little more on the tours and knew I wanted a 6am tour for the best luck.  A little more shuffling and I had our vacation plans reworked and found a reservation that I was thrilled about.

We were able to use points to stay at the Best Western in Crystal River.  The hotel was two minutes drive from the Birds Underwater Dive Center.  They offer a noon check out and they have a large hot tub for guests in the pool area.

To make this work we had a long drive from Lido Key the day before.  No matter how I worked this trip we had to cover more miles than I usually want to deal with on vacation.  We set out with the intent to try to break it up into smaller chunks, that really did not pan out for us. We did spend the afternoon in Homosassa State Park and saw many manatees in the river there, so I was really hopeful.

Then “winter” hit Florida.  When we left the Sarasota area it was a nice sunny almost 80 degrees.  It was a cold, cloudy and barely 60 in Homosassa when I got out of the car.

The only plus is that you can redeem more than one gift card on a future stay.

Best Western Saugatuck Hotel

There are a few tourist towns we like to visit in the winter.  The prices of the area hotels are over half off summer rates.  There are still many things to do and see even if there is snow on the ground.  Saugatuck is one of those towns we visit in winter!

The Best Western Saugatuck is over $150 in the midst of summer.  But winter rates are as low as $70 with a AAA discount.

The hotel has just been freshened up over the winter.  There is new carpet and paint through out.  We liked the new look!

We had a two queen room facing the back woods on this stay.  On the third floor so we can sleep quieter without hearing people above us.  I appreciate the large bathroom and the table with two chairs.  When we take food back for a snack its nice to have a table.
