Are you ready for a Dolphin Kayak Tour in Titusville?
This Dolphin Kayak Tour in Titusville is one of our busiest kayak trips and the #1 daytime outdoor activity in the Orlando, Cocoa Beach, Florida area. 80% of the season manatee are mating, so that makes for eventful trips to what we've dubbed as "The #ManateeBox". On this location you can see upward of 200+ manatee at one time depending on season and time of year.
After you arrive and we've checked everyone in and fitted the pfd's (that's nautical slang for life jacket), we will go over the kayaking basics. That means we will make sure you understand how to maneuver your kayak so you can safely navigate your way on the water. After ALL that (it really only takes about 10 mins max), we will get everyone out onto the water.
We launch from a shallow sandy bottom shoreline, from there we embark to "the box". During the paddle to our 1st destination, it is not uncommon to see wildlife swimming, flying, or standing at the water's edge. Yes, you may see an alligator, after all the alligator is Florida's official state reptile, though it isn't often that we see them (though the owner thinks it's a sign of good fortune to see an alligator face to face on the water and paddle away).
Once our group reaches "the box", we will spend time floating around, and above the manatees in our kayaks. This is where we will spend bit our time taking in the manatee behaving naturally in their environment and answering any questions you may have. From this point, our group will begin the search for dolphin.
This part of the tour will take us through Brairs Cove and the Mangrove trails of The Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge. To get to these Mangrove trails we will traverse the shallows or "flats" as the locals would have it. The "flats" are a good place to see Stingray, BlueCrab, Horseshoe crab, bait fish, Redfish, and some Seagrass. Sure you can "See" dolphin at Seaworld, but not like this (and it's not very ethical either).
No two adventures will be the same as nature is constantly on the move. No cheesy rehearsed scripts here just guides well versed in their ecosystem. Finding Dolphins can be tricky. They are nomadic by nature in their never-ending quest for food, also they never sleep. So we do not always see dolphin, but we have very skilled guides who will assess the conditions and determine the best course of action to see a dolphin.
We can not guarantee that you will see a dolphin or even manatee for that matter. As much as we'd like them to be, the wildlife isn't on our schedule. We have put our Manatee and Dolphin kayak eco-tours in an area that has been frequented by these animals for decades to give our customers the absolute best possible chance of viewing these beautiful creatures.
