Overview
Paddle alongside manatees in their natural habitat on this 2-hour tour from Orlando. Set out along the Indian River near Cocoa Beach on a relaxing kayaking excursion in the presence of the world’s 'original mermaids.' Snap pics of the marine giants as they go about their lives in the estuary’s coves and lagoons. Enjoy this truly unforgettable experience, complete with light refreshments. 
Highlights
  • Manatee kayaking tour near Orlando
  • See the scenic Indian River estuary
  • Great chance to photograph the manatees
  • Visit the manatees’ hangout spots to observe their natural behavior
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.

Manatees are very seasonal to view in a kayak so you better pick a time of the year when they can be seen - we were too later in the Spring and didn't see anything. .More

So sorry to hear the wildlife did not cooperate on your tour. Although manatees do travel seasonally, we do have manatees in the Indian River Lagoon that live here year-round. When it comes to nature, we can never make any guarantees about what you will...More

Vincent, our tour guide did a great job navigating us to all the prime sight seeing spots. We loved it and plan to do it again with more of our friends! Great view of Kennedy Space Center across the Indian River waterway.
