Who are these adorable little guys ?  ” The Florida Manatee “

The West Indian manatee was once abundant throughout the tropic and subtropical western North and South Atlantic and Caribbean waters. However, the manatee’s numbers have been greatly reduced. Today, the West Indian manatee is listed as an endangered species throughout its range.
The range of the Florida manatee is primarily peninsular Florida but extends as far north as Rhode Island. Manatees have been rescued near Houston, Texas, and Mississippi. West Indian manatees may be found in any waterway over 1 m (3.25 ft.) deep and connected to the coast. They prefer waters with temperatures above 21°C (70°F). Florida manateesrarely venture into deep ocean waters. However, manatees have been spotted as far offshore as the Dry Tortugas Islands, approximately 81 km (50 mi.) west of Key West, Florida. Historically, Florida manatees have migrated south into warmer waters during the colder months of the year. On the Gulf coast, manatees congregated at natural warm-water springs. On the Atlantic coast, manatees headed south of the Sebastian River.Today, power plant outfalls and other warm-water discharges are important winter destinations for many manatees.The Florida manatee census taken in January, 2000, found 2,222 individuals. The 1999 survey was 2,353. Scientists believe there may be as many as 3,000 manatees currently in the state of Florida.

° In Florida, more than 200 manatees congregate at some power plants during cold weather. These artificially heated sources have allowed manatees to remain north of their historic wintering grounds.
° Among the most important of the artificial warm-water discharges are the Florida Power & Light Company’s power plants at Cape Canaveral, Fort Lauderdale, Port Everglades, Riviera Beach, and Fort Myers, as well as the Tampa Electric Company’s Apollo Beach power plant in Tampa Bay, Florida (Van Meter, 1989).

How To Find The Best Paddleboard Tours Jupiter FL

A Paddleboard Tour Jupiter is a fun and exciting way to experience first-hand some of the beautiful views and incredible wildlife that Florida’s waterways have to offer. One problem a lot of people run into is choosing the right paddleboard tour for you or your family. You want to get the most out of the experience for the money you pay.

If you’ve already been on a paddleboard tour and had a less than perfect experience, you may be apprehensive about wanting to take another tour. The good news is: not all paddleboard tours are created equal. Having a guide that is experienced and knowledgeable can add fun and education to your tour, take you to the best spots, and knows where to find the wildlife. Having the right guide is essential to getting the most out of your paddleboard adventure.

Read these 3 essentials to look for in your next paddleboard tour guide:

1) Knowledge

Don’t end up in “deep water” with a tour guide that doesn’t know their way around. Make sure your tour is either mapped out ahead of time or is scheduled with a guide who has extensive knowledge of the area of your tour.

2) Experience

Ask before you go! Your guide knowing the safest routes or how close you can get to the Florida wildlife only comes from experience. Go on your Paddleboard Tour Jupiter with a guide who is experienced.

3) Skills

Not everyone can take paddleboard lessons before going on a Paddleboard Tour Jupiter. So, chances are your guide will have to teach you a thing or two before setting off on your adventure. They will not only need to be skilled enough to paddle, but understand enough to teach even the most novice paddler. All three of these essential qualities can be found in the guides and staff of Jupiter Outdoor Center.
