Kayaking at Manatee Park.

Meet at the entrance welcome center. This is also where you pick up your envelope to pay the parking fee $2 for each hour of $5 all day, reserve your kayak and also the restrooms. Kayak rental for 2 hours is $15 dollars they accept cc or cash (bring a drivers license to hold your kayak loan) .
Once the group is together we will walk over to get our kayaks at the outfitters entrance and head out to see the Manatee. If you don't kayak, but want to see the Manatee they have a great area to view them. This park was small but beautiful. I came on a monday last time and it was busy park. This is the end of Manatee seasons so I hope to get my last glimpse till they head out to warm waters.

    Hey Guys! I called Manatee Park today to get an idea of how busy they are and if i can reserve a spot for us all. I was told no reservations but they do know we are coming and they said if they run out of kayaks we can do canoes or something else to get us out on the water for sure. If anyone wants to come ahead of time to get parking and see whats going on that would be cool. I was thinking of getting some sandwiches and coming early for a picnic... Anyone interested in a picnic lunch? I was going to bring a sub from publix and sit out on the tables or even a blanket and enjoy the park. Just a suggestion but this little park does get packed especially since its end of the season for the Manatee and of course Snowbird season :)
