How to Prepare for a Manatee Boat Tour in Daytona

Manatee boat tours are a wonderful way to spend an afternoon on the water for people of all ages.

The entire family can enjoy time on the water, learn from a narrated tour, and take in once-in-a-lifetime views. Here are a few ways to prepare for a Manatee boat tour in Daytona. 

Get Tickets for Manatee Boat Tours

Daytona Beach sightseeing is one of the most popular activities during the busy summer tourist months. Daytona hosts visitors from all over the world, and it’s not uncommon to have some competition for reservations. Boat tours can easily sell out, so reserve your tickets well in advance.  

Pack Your Sunscreen

There’s nothing better than soaking up the sun on a boat tour, but that doesn’t mean you don’t need some protection. It doesn’t take much time to experience a burn — especially during the mid-day tours when the sun’s rays are strongest. All boat tour attendees should apply sunscreen before the tour and plan to re-apply as needed. 


With the excitement of the views and wildlife, it can be easy to forget to drink water. Many visitors don’t realize how much additional water they need when engaging in outside activities. In the hot summer sun, dehydration is not uncommon. Make sure to drink plenty of water before and during your tour.

Get Your Camera Ready

One of the best parts about manatee boat tours is the picturesque landscape and the opportunity to see wildlife. You’ll have a front-row view of the protected mangroves and the Ponce De Leon lighthouse. You’ll also see manatees, birds, and dolphins, so make sure your camera is ready to snap some shots of these unforgettable scenes!

Whether you’ve been visiting Daytona for years or are a first-time visitor, a manatee boat tour is a wonderful way to experience the area. Book an intracoastal cruise, sunset cruise, or charter cruise, and prepare to set off on your tour adventure!
