  • Full description
    On this 3-hour excursion your group will paddle and explore the natural habitat of wild manatee. In the winter months we launch near springs and in the warmer months we paddle the river to find them feeding. While on the water we will also experience close encounters with otter, wading birds, turtles, alligators, deer, and the occasional black bear.
    Your guide will contact you the day before with the exact meeting point, update you on the wildlife seen on that days tour, and answer any questions you might have. They will also find out if you want to use single kayaks or two person tandem kayaks.
