Overview

Manatees—sometimes called sea cows for their slow, peaceful movements—are often spotted in Florida waterways. On this small-group tour,  you'll get up close to manatees and other animals such as alligators, dolphins, and birds as you cruise around on a covered boat, which caters to all types of weather. Plus, exploring with a guide means your chances of spotting the creatures are dramatically increased. 

What to Expect

Meet your guide at the Port of the Islands Marina at your chosen departure time for the 90-minute covered boat tour. Board the boat, put on a pair of provided high-tech water sunglasses, and set sail through the harbor, bay, and mangrove forest in search of manatees.

Your guide is on hand to share details about the history of the region, answer questions, and help you spot the animals. Often, the manatees swim up to the boat allowing for up-close views.Your tour concludes at your original departure point.
