Manatee Lagoon is currently closed to the public. This includes the facility and observation decks to view manatees. We will post an update on our re-opening date, once available, to our social media channels and website. The safety and well-being of visitors and our employees is our top priority.

Please click here to visit the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission’s (FWC) website for updates on this season’s manatee population. The FWC recently stated that environmental conditions in portions of the Indian River Lagoon remain a concern and that preliminary information indicates that a reduction in food availability is a contributing factor.
