Apollo Beach Manatee Viewing
Outside, stroll among award-winning butterfly gardens and Florida-friendly landscaping. You also can see a variety of native and coastal plant life as you stroll along the center's tidal walk. Catch a glimpse of animals in the wild that make the center's habitat their home. Halfway along the Manatee Viewing Center's habitat loop trail – a winding route through natural Florida – you'll arrive at a boardwalk that takes you to our wildlife observation tower. Marvel at the surrounding habitat, including the estuary below, from a 50-foot-high vantage point. Bring a picnic lunch to enjoy at one of the tables at the base of the tower. And on clear days, see all the way across Tampa Bay!
