What You'll Get
To begin your adventure, you will arrive at your meeting point and prepare for the Manatee encounter; gear, wet suit and all you need is included in your tour price. Depart by 7:15am.
You will be transported to a shuttle boat where your paddle craft and captain will be waiting. You will explore the refuge in capable hands from a safe environment, and disembark on your own kayak or SUP when you are comfortable. You will have the opportunity to snorkel with manatees if you wish, or stay topside and take it all in as you paddle!
This is a unique and fun way to view this ecosystem and get up close with these amazing animals, even in the warm months when they can be tougher to find. Your guides will photograph the highlights of your entire manatee swim tour from start to finish, both above and below the water.
Upon returning to your original meeting point, a high-resolution picture CD containing images from your manatee tour will be available for you to purchase if desired. The tour ends after 3 hours.
