Lanae’s Singer Island Spotlight: Manatee Lagoon

Lanae’s Singer Island Spotlight: Manatee Lagoon

If you are looking for a fun activity to do with the kids, your significant other or just by yourself, you have to stop by the Manatee Lagoon in Riviera Beach. Manatee Lagoon is an FPL Eco-Discovery Center and Palm Beach’s latest educational center, providing residents and tourists alike with the perfect vantage point to see these magnificent creatures.

The Key-West styled, 16,000 square foot, $4.8 million facility boasts a two-story manatee viewing deck for a close-up look at these gentle giants. Florida Power & Light, the main electric company for Palm Beach County, made this all possible as the warm waters that flow from the power plant have been a sanctuary for hundreds of manatees since the 1940’s. The power plant has worked with agencies such as the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to ensure the manatees safety.

The marine science center includes interactive touch screen displays, galleries, a pavilion and picnic area, meeting and classroom spaces, a café and gift shop. A great feature on the lagoon’s website is a webcam that broadcasts live images so you can catch the action from your very own home. A great benefit of this project, besides the entertainment aspect, is that raising awareness about these animals will help ensure their survival for the long term.

Manatee Lagoon is free and open to the public Tuesday through Sunday, from 9 AM to 4 PM. The lagoon is located at 100 Broadway, Riviera Beach, FL 33404. For GPS, use: 6000 N. Flagler Drive, West Palm Beach, FL 33407.
