My girlfriend and I were in Orlando on vacation from California and wanted to swim and paddle board with manatees before we left. We were pressed for time as our flight left that afternoon and it would've been impossible to get to experience the manatees...More

As locals, we have rented from Manatee Paddle many times, and we have also recommended them to friends. They are friendly and easy to work with. We had tried other local places before finding them. This is our top pick!!
Made our reservation by e-mail same day as rental & received speedy reply. Our availability was slightly later than the three PM last time to rent but they accommodated us. Good equipment, clear instructions, good prices and they have different boards depending on your skill...More
We had 9 girls in our tour (2 who had never paddle boarded before) and we all had an amazing time. From the beginning they were very responsive in the planning process (through email). Once we arrived at their shop they showed the girls who...More
My husband and I spent 4 hours on the boards and unfortunately didn't see anything but due to the time of year we expected it. We saw lots of fish, birds and turtles. It was a great place to work with! Very nice and helpful!...More
We saw approx 6 manatees! The baffle boarding was easy enough and we are not in good shape. My son sat in the front and I paddled him. The river was gorgeous! Fish were jumping and one landed on our board.
I must first say the owner and his son are great; both very informative and helpful. We scheduled a 9am appointment, arrived 15 minutes early as instructed and were greeted promptly. After signing release forms the owner went over a map showing different springs and...More
Robert and his son were amazing and so accommodating. I have had this on my bucket list for years and I couldn't have asked for a more amazing experience. I attended alone with one of the owners sons and they went above and beyond to...More
We went in hopes of seeing manatees. Unfortunately, due to the time of year, we didn't have any luck. But, the paddle company was GREAT to work with, very friendly staff and decent rates. We have 2 small children, the double kayaks were perfect!

We have some availability still this Sunday. You do not usually need a wetsuit because the water is spring fed at about 73 degrees year round and the mid-day air temperature even in winter is normally not cold enough to require a wet suit except on very cold days. This weekend, the forecast mid-day temperature is in the mid 70’s so you should be fine without a wetsuit. We do rent tandem sit-on-top kayaks.
