Paddle with Manatees and Monkeys.  Dec 26th to Jan 3rd.


Leave winter behind and join us for the experience of a lifetime in beautiful Florida, where the Manatees roam. Swimming or paddling with these gentle giants is past amazing.

We will be staying in a 4 bedroom, 4 bathroom, million dollar plus home on the world famous (home of the Mermaids) Weeki Wachee River. During our last stay in this home we saw Dolphins, Mantees and Osprey in the backyard/river. Some days we will paddle from the back yard.

You have a choice of coming for the first 4 nights, the second 4 nights or all 8 nights.

Check in on December 26th with checkout on December 30th.

If you have never experienced a close encounter with these gentle giants you have really missed out.

We might have opportunities to swim with the Manatees,,, it gets chilly. Wet suits, mask and snorkels recommended.

This is a beginner and kid friendly trip.

Cost of the trip includes 3 meals each day, all trips and any incidental cost like park admissions or parking. You have two options.

Option one: Single, sharing a room with other singles. $700.00 for 4 nights, $1400 for all 8 nights.

Option two: Couple in private room. (SOLD OUT)

Rental boats available. $100 for 4 days, $150 for 8 days.

We will offer paddle trips on 27th through the 2nd. There is a lot to do in the area and you are not obligated to paddle every day. Destinations to be determined as we get closer to the trip dates and get a good read on the weather.

Because the number of beds is very limited you will need to talk with me directly, either phone, text or email to finalize your reservation. We will take payment by check until November 1st. Paying by check will save you approximately 10% in fees that are added on for online processing.

More details will be emailed as we get closer to trip time.
