“Get Up Close and Personal with the Manatees!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2012

If they have moved into warmer water at the park, you're in luck! Nice walking paths too.

“Beautiful paddling spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2012

We visited the park for the first time. The people where wonderful and helpful. We enjoyed the paddling and the sights, but didn't see any manatee. Was still a very nice day out on the water.

“hit or miss”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2012

I say miss. If you do happen to be there at the right time to see the manatees, great, if not there is not much more to see there. They do have kayaks you can rent which would be fun. They have a small gift shop, educational talks and videos, a short nature path and some butterflys. Not exactly what we expected but for a dollar an hour I guess it was ok.

“I saw a manatee for a few seconds”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2012

I went to the park today for a few hours hoping to see a manatee. I turned my head and saw one come up for air. The are out a ways away eating their sea grass. I learned about manatees during the presentation. Everyone at the park was very friendly. Saw a black snake on the walkway. I think that a month later would have promised many manatee sightings but it was a nice day anyway.
