Thanks to everyone who posted an answer about kayaking on the island! We will be on AMI the first week of July. I know that there is no guaranteed way to see manatee in the wild, but what will give us the best chance of seeing them? I would like to see them in the wild, either by kayaking or viewing them from land. What/where would be our best bet to get to see them in the wild? Are the manatees still in this area this time of the year or have they moved to a different area? If we had to go see them at a museum, should we go see Snooty @ Bradenton Museum? I want to see them, but don't want to drive more than 45 minutes or so to do it. Thank you in advance for all of your suggestions!
