There are several ways of seeing these Waterways, Water taxi probably most thorough but Dinner cruises, day trips, fishing trips are alternatives. We have spotted a pod of Dolphins and today spotted(all too briefly) two Manatee cloning up for Air.

I have my own boat so never had to rent one but based on reviews, it appears as though YOLO Boat Rentals would be a good bet. This won't let me post a link so just go to: Yoloboatrentals and then dot c O m And check it out
