Ever seen a manatee in the wild? Manatees (or sea cows) are gentle, lumbering aquatic mammals that number in the thousands here on the Space Coast. They are a natural curiosity for visitors to the area. Below are observation places and tips for viewing manatees.
Manatees are more often seen during warm weather months. They move to different areas of the Indian River Lagoon during very cold periods and are not as likely to be seen.
