In Florida, manatee season begins on Nov. 15 and runs through March 31. Manatees migrate as the winter months arrive and are known to congregate in the warm-water discharges of FPL’s energy center. The most ideal manatee viewing opportunities at Manatee Lagoon occur when cooler temperatures are sustained over a period of two to three days with minimal cloud cover.
