“Well worth the tip.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2012

Really great! We stayed about 90 min, went later in the day. We saw about seven at a long distance on the viewing boardwalk but saw about a dozen close up on the tidal basin side. They were very active with one another and fun to watch.

“Manatees make me smile”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2012

I love manatees. I love to watch them. I love to see that they seem to be content. The decks here are great. Worth a Sunday afternoon drive.
