What To Expect
You’ll have two hours on the water, plenty of time to watch for the manatees that live along this stretch of coastline: the endangered sea mammals are here year-round, grazing on a wide variety of plants within the borders of the 30,000 acre (121,140 ha.) preserve. If you need extra help or instruction during the tour, simply as an instructor for tips on paddling, and enjoy an easy-going pace throughout the trip. This 2-hour tour concludes at the original departure point, in Banana River Aquatic Preserve.
