Dolphin and Manatee Kayaking Tour
From US$65.00
Overview
Paddle a kayak through manatee habitat on a laid-back kayaking tour of the Indian River estuary, where manatees live alongside wild dolphins and sea turtles. Traveling in a quiet, easy-to-maneuver kayak is a low-impact way to see manatees up close as they swim, feed, and play in the estuary’s coves and lagoons, and no previous kayaking experience is necessary.
What to Expect
Make your way to a launch site near the Indian River, where you’ll meet the kayak guide for a short safety briefing. Push off into the gentle current, watching for some of the manatees that are native to Florida’s Atlantic Coast.

The tour is designed to prevent any harm to the manatees, with no touching allowed, but you’ll have plenty of time to shoot memorable photos of the slow-moving mammals. Keep an eye out for a splash or spray as the manatees come up for air, and learn about the lives and habits of Florida’s remarkable manatees before returning to shore.
