Your adventure starts right outside the cruise terminal where your friendly, English speaking guide will greet you and get on board the transport. You will be heading outside of Belize City to a mangrove tree zone where the manatees live in peaceful existence. As the transportation passes through Belize City, your guide will point out the sites and give you all kind of information about the area and the famous manatees.

Your destination is the Belize River that is home to the gentle creatures. A short boat ride will take you to where you can see the manatees doing what they do best...grazing on grass and lazily gliding in the water. Known as "sea cows" they get their nickname for the amount of seagrass they consume daily - up to 90 pounds each day!

Manatees are mammals that live in fresh water but breathe air. View the shy manatee as it comes up for air so have your cameras ready! Manatees are gray or brown in color, quite wrinkled and are covered in bristly hairs. They typically live for 50-60 years. Your excursion guide will help point them out and give you lots of information as well as answer questions.

These protected sea mammals are believed to be the "mermaids" many sailors saw and talked about because of their slow and frolicking swimming motion. This may be a once in a lifetime chance to see manatees in the wild!

The guide will return you to your Belize cruise tender terminal when the excursion is completed. The actual duration will depend on how long the search for manatees takes - 2.0 to 3.0 hours.

There are several boats used depending on group size for that day - ranging from 23 feet to 38 feet (15 to 35 passengers) but larger boats available.

We loved this excursion, the guide and our time in the excursion was amazing. I took this excursion because I have two kids I wanted them to have a good experience in our cruise trip. Well, I need to tell you that all of us enjoyed and took a great experience and educational information of the Manatees. Thank you for everything.

We had a wonderful time with Stacey and everyone at (tour operator). We had the guides all to ourselves and since our family was the only one on the manatee watching excursion they even went out of their way to give us a small tour when the excursion was over. The drive to the river was a bit long but Stacey shared many stories about the island. It was nice to see the manatees in their natural habitat. They are so funny and cute to watch! We really enjoyed it. We also learned that Belize is home to the most manatees in the world. This was a great way to explore the outskirts of Belize while enjoying a fun wildlife watching.
