Kayaking with the Manatees on the St Johns River December 3, 2014









Today was a day for Family and Friends. With 3 generations on the St Johns River it was a fun time. The Great Blue Herons were chasing each other around sounding off like Teridactiles and the Manatees were passing by us just feet away. The Red-bellied and River Cooter Turtles were out sunning in bunches and we got to see a big Gator hiding behind the Water Hickory branches. There was a smaller 3 foot Gator soaking up some Sun and the Great Egrets, Snowy Egrets and Little Blue Herons were fishing and flying around too. The Cormorants are a comical sight sitting on the barrier for the Manatee Sanctuary, they are the Sentinels of the Spring Run... and Allijo and Hannah gave the best bird calls of the day!

Thank you very much. We all had a wonderful time. Your knowledge of the St. John's ecosystem was very appreciated and was prefect in helping us to connect with the environment. This was a trip that we will all remember. My parents both mentioned that your tour was the perfect antidote to the overstimulation of Disney World. Hope to see you again some day.
