I was there last week and also wish I'd had more time to be able to spend the proper amount of time at this wonderful little park. The manatees in the lagoon were awesome, a mother and baby swam right up to the underwater observatory almost as if they were checking us out as well! They actually have an injured manatee care center there along w/ all sorts of other wildlife. A quick tip, in addition to the entrance on HWY 19, there's a separate entrance right in front of the springs entrance. Park there and go right in so you don't have to wait for the tram or pontoon boat if you don't want to. Also, there's a 3/4 mile road that leads from the HWY 19 entrance to the park entrance if you'd like to walk. You can also get discounts for AAA or AARP membership. If you're in the area, definitely check this out!
