The boardwalk walkway is very close to the parking lot making this an easy quick stop to see manatees. We were lucky and saw a few warming their backs in the sun. They occasionally come up for air but otherwise just float there warming up.

Island Adventure actually runs tours, around $50-60 as I recall. For Round Island, it is pretty easy to self guide, if you are comfortable with kayaks. I have had good luck with Orchid Island for bike and kayak rentals. The manatees were out in force a couple of days ago. There is not a rental place directly at the state park.
