Manatees in Hilton Head

Although I have never had the privilige of seeing a manatee (Trichechus manatus latirostris) in Hilton Head waters, these gentle and endangered creatures do make their way into Skull Creek and Broad Creek. They are slow moving and nonthreating which makes them vulnerable to injury from boats and other motorized watercraft. Kayaking is a great way to see wildlife that will not injure manatees or other animals and fish while exploring on the water!
