Manatee park is a nice place where you can learn about manatees and see them in their habitat. you can rent kayaks there and take them out onto the water and pet the manatees with one hand that come up to the kayak. The staff is pretty nice and the cost is reasonable. They also give you a lot of information on the manatees including how many seen, water temperatures and more.

At the right time of year and a little luck and you could see 100s of manatees hanging out!

You are guaranteed to see manatees at this park. The Manatees love the warm water (due to the electric power plan which uses water to cool equipment). A great sight seeing option when the weather is cool or cloudy.

The manatees like to stay warm too. Especially during a "cold snap", they come to the warmed water leaving our electric plant. Good parking. Easy access.

You will see Floirda's Manatee's in there natural habitat. A good time to go is especially in the cooler months as the nearby electric plant heats the waters and the manatees really like the warmer water. Canoe and kayak rental available.

Manatee Park is a freely accessible, beautifully landscaped park. If you come by car, you pay $ 2 an hour or $ 5 for the whole day. If you are lucky, you can also see manatees there, who gave the park its name. The sight cows come in the winter time, from the end of October, when the water in the Gulf of Mexico gets cooler and they retire to warmer waters.
