The Marine Wildlife Are Here!

Our waters are globally recognized as being among the most biologically diverse ecosystems found anywhere. Our sub-tropical climate, fresh water and sea water intertidal mixing, and abundant sunlight provide the ingredients for an explosion of biodiversity! Manatees call this area home all year long, and our watersports activities all feature very strong possibility for manatee sightings and interactions, no matter where we go. Bottlenose dolphin are also highly abundant and are part of our tours every day. 

Typical outings also include sightings of numerous marine wildlife including wading birds, diving birds, birds of prey, and under the surface we encounter rays, fish, crab, and can often touch critters briefly along the shorelines including harmless and kid-friendly marine snails and horseshoe crab.
