Spotting and identifying a manatee for the first time can be a tricky process. Someone will call out “Manatee!” and all you’ll see is ripples in widening rings. This trip offers a unique opportunity to view manatees in the warm outflow water from a power plant. Here you’ll be able to note their above-water appearance so you’ll know what to look for, so you can recognize manatees when you see them from your kayak. The Orange River is a tributary of the Caloosahatchee River, entering the Caloosahatchee close to the I–75 bridge and near a power plant. The river stained my white kayak orange, so maybe it’s the color of the water in the river that led to its name. Upstream from the launch site the river becomes progressively overgrown to the point where vegetation creates a tunnel around the river. Downstream, the river runs into mangrove, where manatee-watching tour boats drift, and anglers cast.
