Belize is home to a sub-species of the West Indian manatee, one of four living species of manatees. Manatees are primarily herbivorous and feeds on a wide variety of submerged, floating, and shoreline vegetation. They range in weight from 440 to 1,320 lbs and can reach length of up to 11.5 feet.
The Placencia Lagoon and nearby coastal habitats are some of the prime feeding grounds and home for this magnificent creature. This tour allows you to learn about threats and conservation effort for the sustainability of this endangered and threatened marine mammal.

Jason led our Monkey River tour and it was amazing. The depth of knowledge he has about the wildlife and flora in the area is impressive. Not only did we see a lot of wildlife (crocs, monkeys, manatees, birds galore, bats, otters, etc), but we learned a ton too. It was a great way to spend a few hours, and we felt lucky to have Jason as our guide.
