What you can expect

The Manatee and Dolphin tour is one of our busiest kayak trips and the #1 daytime outdoor activity in the Orlando, Cocoa beach, FL area. 10 out of 12 months out of the year is manatee mating season, so that makes for eventful trips to what we've dubbed as “The #ManateeBox”. This location can see upward of 200+ manatee at one time depending on season and time of year. Sometimes we're privy to witness the manatee breeding herds in action, now that's something you won't see at the theme parks! During this kayak adventure tour, we hope to see a variety of wildlife such as Dolphin, Birds, Fish, Stingray, Horse Shoe Crab and maybe even an Alligator!

We launch from a shallow sandy bottom shoreline, from there we embark to “the box”. During the paddle to our 1st destination, it is not uncommon to see wildlife swimming, flying, or standing at the water's edge. Yes, you may see an alligator lol, after all the alligator is Florida's official state reptile, although it isn't often that we see them (although the owner thinks it's a sign of good fortune to see an alligator face to face on the water and paddle away). Once our group reaches “the box”, we will spend time floating around, and above the manatee in our kayaks. This is where we will spend bit our time taking in the manatee behaving naturally in their environment and answering any questions you may have. From this point, our group of #FLAdventurers will begin the search for dolphin.

This part of the tour will take us through Brairs Cove and the Mangrove trails of The Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge. To get to these Mangrove trails we will traverse the shallows or “flats” as the locals would have it. The “flats” are a good place to see Stingray, BlueCrab, Horseshoe crab, bait fish, Redfish, and some Seagrass. Sure you can “See” dolphin at Seaworld, but not like this.

We offer you the chance to witness the Bottlenose Dolpin in the act of predation. We have a few places we frequently see dolphin preying on baitfish. These animals can hit speeds of up to 40 MPH in the blink of an eye. It is not uncommon to witness these resident IRL Bottlenose Dolphin breech the waters surface out to their dorsal fin, LITERALLY, just feet from your S.O.T. kayak, while snapping at a Mullet in the air!! It is truly “a once in a lifetime tour” for our out of State/Country guests
