Kayaking with the Manatees December 9th, 2015
Chris and Wendy brought their 2 young sons out for their 4th kayak tour with us. Today the St Johns River was all ours! In search of the Manatee. The boys 9 and 12 are quite the paddlers and very curious…drifting past sunning Anhingas, Purple Gallinule on the Water Lilies and Limpkins looking for that hidden Apple Snail. Upstream at the Manatee Refuge the Sea Cows were heavy and we had many close encounters. In the flooded swamps of Snake Creek we spotted a lone Barred Owl napping on a low branch. There were Turtles sunning and a few nice Alligators rounded out our fun.
