Join Manatee Lagoon – An FPL Eco-Discovery Center®, Loggerhead Marinelife Center, Get Wet Watersports and the Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line as we take you on an unforgettable adventure to explore the marvels of South Florida’s unique marine ecosystem.
Half-day pre-sail excursions and full-day post-sail excursions are available and shuttle transportation will be provided to each stop along the tour. On your visit to Manatee Lagoon, a Manatee Master will lead you on a private guided tour of our interactive exhibit space featuring fascinating images and facts about manatees and the surrounding Lake Worth Lagoon. You can also enjoy our wrap-around observation deck offering panoramic views of the busy waterway, local landmarks and perhaps catch glimpses of the gentle giants that visit our facility during the cooler months.
Following this, guests will be transported to a behind-the-scenes tour of Loggerhead Marinelife Center in Juno Beach. An education docent will lead guests through the exhibit hall and outdoor sea turtle hospital, touching on topics such as conservation efforts, LMC history and the current conditions of their patients. After both visits, half-day excursion guests will return to the Port of Palm Beach cruise terminal to board the ship while those staying on for the full-day will enjoy lunch and a guided kayak or paddleboard tour around beautiful Peanut Island before returning to their vehicles at Marina Village.
