Merry Christmas Manatee Tour

It was a bit windy as we started our journey on the St Johns River this morning but it died down as the day went on. Around the island we got to see the first Great Blue Heron nest of the season, a Limpkin and Little Blue Heron sharing a branch and a few Snowy Egrets out feeding. The birds are starting to get their breeding plumage going and their fluff is starting to show. We paddled on toward the Manatee sanctuary to see what encounters we might have and sure enough there they were. The babies are so curious and swam right under our kayaks while the larger ones were spotted coming in and out of Blue Springs looking for breakfast. As we kayaked around the oxbow the Great Egrets were like sentinels in the marsh and in Snake Creek we spotted several small Alligators. Then Ben found the day's first Red-bellied Turtles. Back toward the Manatee spot they came out to greet us again and Molly got a quick lift from one on the way back to the launch. It was a great group to be paddling with and a great day to be on the river.
Below are some photos Tim shared with us from the GoPro...

Kayaking the Wild and Scenic Wekiva River

The Wekiva River never ceases to amaze me. Sometimes it's high and tea colored and other times the river is Gin clear. Sometimes we see nothing but green and the gray of the Spanish Moss in the trees and then it's all Fall colors like it's starting to get now. Today the water was clear and there was lots of wildlife. Red-shouldered Hawks, Osprey, Kingfishers, Great Egrets, Little Blue, Tri-colored Herons, White Ibis, Eastern Phoebe and a Great Blue Heron wading up to his belly. Up at the island we could see the spring vent under the water with it's lime green stone edge and there were tons of Turtles out sunning. The Red Maples are showing their Fall colors and it was a great day for a paddle.  

A Labor Day full of Central Florida wildlife 2015

We took to the water before the crowds on this Labor Day morning and the early trip paid off. The St Johns River is running high and we're able to paddle back into the swamps again. Up the spring run the black water faded to clear and the aquatic life became visible. Longnosed Gar by the dozen, Tilapia, Mullet, Bream, Bass and more. We had two Manatees come over for a visit and that was a nice summertime treat. On the big St Johns we spyed a Bald Eagle sitting high in the tree and 2 other Manatees feeding at the weedline. In Snake Creek we kayaked through the swamps where it was nice and quiet. It's like paddling through the trees. As we drifted back with the current we welcomed the overcast skies and it was a great day exploring the Central Florida wildlife.
