Florida Manatee: Trichechus manatus latirostris

The Florida manatee inhabits coastal waters and rivers throughout the State. They can easily move between fresh, brackish and marine habitats and lives in many Florida waterways, including where we paddle! While we can see manatees anywhere, anytime on our other tours in the warmer months, they still frequent their favorite year-round haunts. In the cooler months, in order to stay warm, they seek warm water, discharges, springs and in our area, deep water passes and canals. The deeper water retains heat and helps keep the manatee's stabilize their body temperature.

We use a combination of single and tandem kayaks to view the "sea cows". Led by an experienced naturalist, we will paddle amongst a natural, wild population of manatees; close enough to view without disturbing these gentle creatures. Even though they are wild, we still encounter manatees on most every tour!

Led by a Florida Master Naturalist Guide, you will learn little known facts about the Florida manatee and its relationship to the Florida ecosystem. A "must do" experience while in Marco Island, Naples or Everglades City

Be sure to bring your camera!

Come have some fun and let us share our passion!
