From a two-person kayak, discover the wonder and beauty of Florida’s dolphins and manatees, as well as other native aquatic wildlife, as you encounter them in their natural habitat. Paddle from Manatee Cove to the estuary’s wild, uninhabited lagoon island.

Stepping onto the island, set out on an easy, guided nature walk. Your professional eco-guide provides a fascinating introduction to the Indian River, its endangered estuary, and the sheltered backwater lagoon islands that serve as a refuge for West Indian manatees, bottlenose dolphins, Florida alligators, spectacular waterfowl and many other types of estuarine-dwelling wildlife.

This is a breathtaking, unforgettable wildlife adventure and no prior kayaking experience is required.

Rain poncho and a bottle of water provided. Total time on the water is two hours. Minimum age is 7 years. Bring your phone, camera and/or camcorder at your own risk, as waterproof containers are not provided.
