Enjoy a 30-minute paddle through a manatee protection speed zone surrounding the manatee-packed Faka Union Canal. Once you’ve found your kayaking rhythm, the tour paddles out into the numerous mangrove tunnels connected to the canal. Expect to see multiple protected animal species, including the American alligator, Roseate Spoonbill and the always-curious river otter.
