Caribbean cayes and coast: Spot the elusive manatee

Visit Us

Spot the elusive manatee
Enjoy a one and a half hour boat cruise in search of the shy and elusive West Indian manatee. You'll slowly cruise Placencia lagoon by motor boat looking for neat trails of sea grass, the tell-tale signs that manatees have been munching their way along the bottom of the lagoon. The boat heads stealthily to where the manatees congregate at the mouth of a freshwater creek.

If you're lucky you'll also spot Morelet's crocodiles or the bottle-nosed and Atlantic-spotted dolphins which frequent the lagoon.
