Sea Turtle and Manatee Eco Tours

Posted by Amanda Hicks on Wednesday, September 20th, 2017 at 10:08am.

This weekend, September 23rd and 24th, the Singer Island Outdoor Center will be hosting daily guided paddle board tours to seek out sea turtles and manatees. The tours explore the mangroves of the Loxahatchee River and the Indian River Lagoon, the most bio-diverse estuary in the U.S. On the rout you will also pass the Jupiter Lighthouse and head to Sawfish Bay which has two magrove islands you can roam about and see birds, crabs, and even iguanas. The tour will start at 11:30 a.m. both days and meeting at 1116 Love St., Jupiter. You will be supplied with a paddleboard and your tour guide will give you basic paddle and safety instructions. Sea turtles are nesting now and manatees are aplenty in these parts so you're sure to have a great experience! You'll also most likely see dolphins, and definitely a variety of birds and fish. So don't forget your camera, just make sure it's in a waterproof case. Tickets are $40 and can be purchased here.
