We cannot guarantee manatee sightings each tour we take out, however we will do our best go to the areas where they are typically most active. Manatee season officially runs through November 15th – March 31st. Manatee season means that during this time, the gulf gets too cold for the manatees so they seek refuge in the springs. However, during manatee season, we sometimes reach warmer temperatures outside that cause the manatees to swim back out to the bay/gulf to find food. We would like all our guests to be aware of this possibility so that there are no surprises!
