The center features hands-on, interactive, entertaining exhibits for visitors to learn about these unique gentle giants, and on cold winter days, the facility’s observation deck is the ideal spot to view manatee herds basking in the warm-water outflows from Florida Power & Light Company’s adjacent Riviera Beach Next Generation Clean Energy Center.
