Join us on a once-in-a-lifetime experience to see manatees in their natural habitat. Meet the guide on a beach that hosts food, drinks, and beach chairs. Enter a unique area is home to families of manatees; a rare and magical species of aquatic mammal only found in a few special areas of the world. Admire these large, timid sea potatoes who, just like us, want to enjoy life. Passively interact with the manatees by floating and observing them without touching or petting them. Follow the manatees calmly without chasing them and watch them interact with their environment and each other. Locate them, calmly swim towards them, and bask in their beauty and magic. Observe them grazing on the marine grasses, bonding with siblings, feeding their young, and simply existing in a protected environment.
