Clean and contemporary, good place to stop for an hour to learn more about manatees and the intersection with FPL

I totally recommend the tour. Very educational. It was an enjoyable experience even though I didn't get to see any live manatees. They are in the lagoon from Nov- March mostly.

This was our first visit here. We went in late March and there were still sweet manatees everywhere. The best time is winter through early spring to see the manatee. The center has lots of educational resources for all ages and a cute gift shop. I could have stayed there all day. The breeze of the water was wonderful. There is a large Banyan tree and seating along the water where people were having a picnic lunch. Great place!

We arrived here not long before closing time. As we walked from parking lot, the guide blew her whistle & announced loudly "Manatee Sighting!" We hurried around to viewing area & got to see one of these enormous creatures. Awesome, especially when we heard none had been in all day until that point. About 10 minutes later a calf & mom slowly swam in.
Educational center was very good too!
