Wildlife, Wildlife, Wildlife!!!!
The Space Coast (Brevard County) has one of the best habitats for a wide range of wildlife. This is due to being at the point of where the north and south air masses meet, making the species from the north and the south able to co-exist here! Some of the animals you can encounter on you kayaking adventure in Turkey Creek and Indian River Lagoon are Manatees, Turtles, Dolphins, Birds, Fish and yes even Alligators. The Indian River Lagoon is considered to be a critical habitat for the Florida Manatee due to the warm water, sea-grass beds for food, and protection. That being said this area has the highest mortality (death) rate to the Florida manatee as well as other marine life. This is why kayaking has become one of the best ways to see these animals up close and with no chance of harm. Let Palm Bay Kayaks put you right in the heart of all this wildlife with one of our many kayak rental options and launch sites around the area.
