Manatees come into the warm water springs of King's Bay to maintain their body temperature. Therefore the best time for viewing manatees is the early morning tour on the coldest day of the year. While there are 50-60 resident manatees here all year, during the coldest days there were over 600 in January 2014.
Board our boat for a short cruise through Cocoa Beach's Intracoastal to a remote island tha you wont want to leave, you'll see sand bars full of sea shells for you to collect and observe the Florida birds such as the Pelican, Melrose, Spoonbill, and many others who live in this island paradise.
