THIS TRIP IS SOLD OUT, WE ARE DOING IT AGAIN IN FEBRUARY,, 12 TO 17TH. DETAILS AT:
Leave winter behind, come with us to Florida!! 4 different rivers on 4 different days.
You must go to: www.eventbrite.com/e/paddle-with-the-manatees-5-nights-4-days-4-rivers-tickets[masked] to register and pay. You do not have a spot until you complete this step.
If you have never experienced a close encounter with these gentle giants you have really missed out. We will drive down on Tuesday the 12th, and will be paddling Wednesday the 13th, Thursday the 14th, Friday the 15th and Saturday the 16th with a checkout on Sunday the 17th.
We have a lot of rivers to choose from and the final decision about where to paddle will be made closer to the trip. Some of the rivers will be weather dependent. Rivers on our list include the Homosassa, Chassahowitzka, Crystal, Weeki Wachee and the Rainbow Rivers.
I cannot imagine paddling these rivers and not encountering Manatees along with many other types of wildlife.
You can choose to paddle with us all four days or any combination but the price for the trip is the same regardless of how many days you paddle.
We have three options for this trip;
We have a luxury Riverside house reserved with limited spaces. Check in Tuesday. The house is on the Homosassa River just down stream from Homosassa Springs. It has a private pool, private boat dock, huge kitchen and dining room. The cost of option one is $550 per person or $1100 per couple sharing a private bedroom.
