Dolphin and Manatee Kayaking Tour
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.

Awesome Trip Thanks to Otto!

We had four folks in two kayaks (two couples). The manatees were EVERYWHERE (and so close you could pet them), and we even saw a dolphin. Otto was the highlight of the tour, even with the manatees! The area was truly beautiful and very relaxing.

On our trip it was my husband, myself and our teenage daughter. I was of course a little nervous as I didn't know what to expect (that's my nature). My daughter and I rode tandem and my husband rode by himself in a single kayak....More

Manatees, manatees, manatees!

We went out with Bailey, and he was fantastic! We knew before going out what the rules were for being in the water with the manatees. We headed out from Haulover Canal and cruised up to a little area where there were manatees everywhere! Bailey...More

Manatees enjoy warmer waters, therefore, you see the most Mantees when it is warm. If it is cold they tend to hover near the bottom.
