Manatee Discovery Tour

Trip Highlights

  • Close Encounter with Manatees

  • Abundant Wildlife Habitat

  • Fantastic Wildlife Viewing

  • Top Rated Kayak Gear

  • Tasty Trail Snack & Bottled Water

Description

Make close contact with these gentle and lovable creatures in one of the largest winter gathering sites for manatees in Florida. Hundreds of manatees make Blue Spring State Park their winter home during the colder months, and some stay around all year.

Join us for a kayak tour through the active waterways of the Blue Spring State Park area! Nature surrounds this area on every turn and we often witness alligators and turtles sun-bathing on the shore. A variety of birds, big and small, call this area their home, which makes spotting bald eagles, ospreys, red-shouldered hawks, and other wading birds a common occurrence. With a little luck, we will encounter the occasional river otter swimming in the river.

This tour is perfect for families and wildlife enthusiasts.
