The swimming area at Rainbow Springs



The water in this spring-fed swimming area is 72 degrees year-round. Too cold for me. But lots of people swim there, in spite of alligators in the area!

Please click on the photos to embiggen.

I couldn't read the aligator sign, but I have to tell you I've done worse than this... twice! LOL! At least things seem to be under control here.

Oh, yikes! Has anyone ever been attacked by an alligator while swimming there?!!!!

I would swim there, alligators or not.

It's a beautiful area -- the color of the water is outstanding! And the alligator sign would keep me out standing on the edge. :)

Right! I don't care how deep the water is, I can float, but as much as I like animals, I think the sign would have me looking for the ocean instead.

Hi Jacob,
A wow... There is a big sign there... I think there is an alligator on it!!! Man, are you really swimming there... I'll never do it!!!

Kinda scary for me. Have you seen an alligator there. Is it just a precaution? Where's the pool? I think that would be where I'd swim. MB

No thanks! I'm not interested in feeding the alligators!
