From the months of November to April, the TECO Manatee Viewing Center is an admission-free attraction available to the general public. All one needs to do to get there is follow the signs from I-75 off the Apollo Beach exit.

Morning visits are highly encouraged since they are most active at that time.
When all else fails and the manatees happen to not be in a photo mood, make lasting memories of your visit in the hurricane simulator below the museum decks. High winds on the inside blow your hair and clothing articles every which way, so hold tight and make sure your laugh.
