There are three species of manatee and all are listed by the World Conservation Union as vulnerable to extinction. Spend a weekend in cabins at a private farm in Florida where you’ll learn about the manatee’s ecology, conservation and habitat, then strap on a snorkel and slip into crystal clear springs to swim alongside these gentle giants.
Day 1: Enjoying a leisurely dinner and light orientation to manatee lifestyles
Day 2: Taking a ride on a viewing boat, then jumping off to snorkel with the manatees
Day 3: Exploring a swamp ecosystem on an airboat, searching for owls at dusk and enjoying a delicious dinner
