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.

Visited with grandson this week. Many manatee in the water just of pathway, including mother and calf. A great spot to see manatee up close. Also saw multiple dolphin in these waters. Finally, a great kayaking spot, easy entry to water.

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... More
