One of the most endangered ocean mammals, the manatees can be viewed at the Tampa Electric Manatee Viewing Center during the months from November to April. There is no admission fee, exploring the area is free.

It is good to know about and see the animals that are on the brink of extinction. Though I didn't see any signs that would describe these mammals or their situation. Being so close to the electric center can't be the best place for them, though.

Address:
6990 Dickman Rd, Apollo Beach, FL 33572, USA

Price:
Free.

Opening Hours:
10am-5pm daily (November-April)
