Stop At:

Join us on a kayak or paddleboard as we paddle in a sheltered secluded lagoon where we search for Manatees and other wildlife. Each winter herds of wild manatees migrate to our warm South Florida waters. Here calves are born and manatee families care for their young before migrating north for the summer. Adults may weigh over a ton, an impressive size. Nothing to worry about unless you are a salad, manatees are herbivores. They are graceful swimmers and gentle despite their size. This eco-adventure is sure please with close encounters of local wildlife. We may venture out to the Virginia Key Cove where multiple manatee and dolphin sightings have been documented! Virginia Key is filled with life. You will likely encounter coastal birds such as great herons, egrets, crested night herons and more. Guests always enjoy the large iguanas that now live in the area. If time and weather permits it, we may beach at North Point where you are able to see the gorgeous Miami Skyline. Discover the other side of Miami, like a native, at Virginia Key Outdoor Center.
