Det här kan du vänta dig

Gör din egen väg till båtrampen i Orange City för att träffa din guide.

Din guide ger en säkerhetsinformation, grundläggande paddling instruktion och riktlinjer för att observera Floridas djurliv. Hoppa sedan i din kajak och följ din guide till våren. På våren pekar din guide på de bästa ställen att se manaterna, och svarar på eventuella frågor om "havsko".

Efter att ha tittat på manatees, fortsätt till Snake River och kajak genom en bäck som skyddar ett överflöd av vilda djur. Där kan du se manater, otters, alligatorer, skalliga örnar, fiskgjuse, röda axlar, stora vaddfåglar, coots, moorhens och wild hogs.

Vid återkomsten till din bil, gör ett sista stopp på en trä strandpromenad för att titta på manater. Efter din turné, var fri att stanna kvar på parken för en picknick eller snorkling.

Great to exploring the river with Sue lots of alligators and manatees
Penny_S, mars 2024
We had an amazing day. Sue was our tour guide and boy was she on top of everything! We started with a instructional safety guide and got right into it. She was amazing took us right to where the manatees are. They are starting to migrate out of the warmer waters so we saw a few and then she took us down several inlets with lots of alligators and turtles, So Much Fun, and lots of birds which Sue knew the species! She knew lots of history of the area. It was such a fun tour and great exercise. I had never kayaked before and she instructed me how to do it properly. I was in a tandem with my husband. Thank you, Sue a wonderful day on the river highly recommend!
Lower your expectations
Jenny_F, mars 2024
I recently went on a tour that was advertised as a "Kayaking with Manatees" experience, but unfortunately, it fell short of expectations. The main disappointment was the water quality; it was so dark and murky that we couldn't see anything, let alone any manatees. This was particularly disappointing because the photos used to advertise the tour showed clear water and happy interactions with manatees, which did not align with our actual experience. Despite the lackluster conditions, our guide was excellent. She was knowledgeable, friendly, and did her best to make the most of the situation. However, it's clear that the tour's name is misleading. Given that we only spotted one manatee and the overall experience was not as advertised, I feel that the tour should be titled more accurately, perhaps as a "Birds, Alligators, and Maybe a Manatee Tour." Considering the cost of the tour, I would not recommend it. If you're specifically looking to kayak with manatees, you're likely to be disappointed. However, if you're interested in birdwatching and seeing alligators, this tour might be more suitable.
Great kayak. Lots of manatees !!
Ruth_M, mars 2024
Bill and his wife Gina were very informative and fun. We saw lots of manatees , fish , birds, and gators ! You are in direct sun and on the water the whole time so sunscreen and protective clothing and a sun hat are a must ! But a great way to see some of these amazing animals up close. Take this tour !!!
Great trip
Claudine_B, feb. 2024
Great trip with Jimi, very knowledgable guide. Saw lots of wildlife, alligators, turtles snakes, many bird species and manatees!!
A must do if you’re in the area.
Robert_M, feb. 2024
Bill our guide was great very friendly and knowledgeable. We saw a small alligator, several turtles and birds and most importantly 15 or more manatees and a few came up right next to our kayak. It was thrilling!
Gina was awesome
Billy_H, feb. 2024
Gina was so fun. We saw manatees and alligators ! Would definitely do again and recommend this to everyone.
Kayaking Fun
Christine_M, aug. 2023
This was such a great experience, especially for a novice. Our tour guide was Sue, she was amazing, friendly and very involved in guiding us.
Perfect Paddle with Gina
Thomas_N, juli 2023
What a beautiful spot! We also got a break in the weather, the temperature was just right. But most of all...our guide Gina was spectacular! She was the perfect combination of knowledgeable and friendly and funny! Pointed out so much wildlife including a ton of birds, some alligators and a bunch of manatees! Thank you Gina!
Day of fun and manatees with Sue
Roberto_L, juli 2023
Sue is an excellent guide!!! Her knowledge of the manatees, wildlife, river and area is second to none. Or party of seven had a blast kayaking the Wekiwa River with her. 2+ hours of fun and information. The whole family recommends this tour and Sue. Plus we had four separate sightings of manatees and much more. Sue really did her homework before taking us out!
We were able to see...

We were able to see manatees and alligators with bill allowing us to set the pace and explore ourselves
Poor communication between Viator and tour operator & poor response to complaint
Gilda_L, apr. 2023
Jimi from Orlando Manatee Encounters was very professional and knowledgable, and made our 3 hours on the river quite enjoyable. Nevertheless, the fact that we had to use a full day to go on this excursion instead of the planned half day was the killer of the experience. The operator changed the meeting point for the excursion the day before the excursion, and tried to contact us by calling my cell. I have blocked unknown callers so did not receive this phone call. No additional effort was made from tour operator or most importantly from Viator, with whom we contracted the tour. We arrived 30 minutes ahead of the requested meeting time and called Viator to be sure we were at the right place. Viator said they contacted the tour operator, and related to us that they would be arriving any minute to meet us. I was given the tour operator phone number grudgingly by Viator, so I would have it just in case. Twenty minutes later (10 min before the scheduled meeting time) I called the tour operator only to find out they were launching the tour from another location 30 minutes away by car, and that we would not be able to make our tour. The tour operator tried to rectify their wrong by offering us a tour 3 hours later, which we took, and which also meant we spent the whole day on this, instead of having the afternoon for another activity We contacted Viator and requested a compensation for messing up our schedule: We were told our complaint would be "escalated" but here we are, 3 days after the fact, with no effort from their part to establish any communication. It is the last time I contract a tour with Viator
Good way to spend a fun active day
Dianna_K, mars 2023
The guides were great! Super friendly and made sure everyone was comfortable and had what they needed to have a great time. Snacks were yummy. Thanks for taking and sharing pix from our adventure. Sad we did not see any manatees however.
Kayaking
Karen_D, sep. 2022
My husband & me went on the kayak trip & really enjoyed the scenic river. We saw lots of herons & alligators. I would recommend this trip. Gina was a great guide.
Up close to manatees
Tammy_H, juni 2022
Highly recommend this adventure for all ages. Gina our tour guide and Kara her assistant absolutely AMAZING!! Their knowledge about the wildlife and its natural habitat kept you at ease at all times. We were blessed to see manatees, turtles, fish, and 2 alligators. The fish in the spring water abundant and amazing to see up close in CLEAR water. WOW!! With Gina's knowledge when the gators were close we remained calm and just enjoyed viewing them gliding across the water. Our 2 teenagers girls were nervous, but handled it well. What an amazing experience. Something we will share with others for our lifetime. Don't let any fear of fish or gators keep you from this amazing up close adventure of manatees in their natural environment. We saw 2 of them interacting with kids on a raft. 3 of them in another area being frisky with one another. Just incredible. Could have stayed there ALL day. Must do when in the area. We stayed in Daytona it was less then a hour ride. Well worth it. Thank you Gina and Kara!!!
Loved it

Amy_K, mars 2022
Guy was an excellent guide! We learned so much. He gave us a perfect balance of information and quiet time to enjoy the gorgeous surroundings. No manatee sightings but we didn't even care. It was a fantastic paddle.
Great experience!
Gerald_S, mars 2022
What an amazing experience! Our guide, Gina, was incredible. Not only was she very knowledgeable, she was also very friendly and went the extra mile to ensure that we had a great time. We saw all kinds of local wildlife including manatees, alligators, turtles, fish and many different kinds of birds, can't wait to do it again!
Manatees, Alligators, Birds oh my….
Megan_M, mars 2022
We were able to see manatees in the rooed off area, even though they were being lazy and didn’t come up to the surface very much. We saw several alligators, turtles, and native birds. Bill our guide was pleasant and knowledgeable.
