Have you checked out the cool online store that supports the Manatee Viewing Center just about 2 1/2 hours north of us?
Tampa Electric’s Manatee Viewing Center is an award-winning, state and federally designated manatee sanctuary that provides critical protection and research for the gentle mammals. Open since 1986, the Center offers visitors from around the world an opportunity to see manatees in their natural setting from November to April. The center is free to the public and is located at 6990 Dickman Rd in Apollo Beach.
Before you head up to see the lovable sea cows in person, however, make sure you and your family have all the appropriate gear! You won’t believe the huge selection of mana-tees and other delightful items available in their online store here!
