Amazing two hour trip! The manatees were everywhere and everyone was wonderful about spotting them out. This was our second visit to the kayak company and it most definitely will not be our last!

Thank you! We look forward to serving you again soon. I am so glad you came after the cold fronts that brought the manatees back to the spring areas.

Glad you enjoyed your experience. Cooler air temperature tends to bring the manatees to the springs. February had 24 out of 28 days in the 80's. It was so warm that the manatees could go anywhere to feed. There was no need to keep warm....More
