Our high-end shuttle service will pick you up at the Riviera Beach Marina Village where we’ll take you to our first stop, the Sea Turtle Hospital at Loggerhead Marinelife Center in Juno Beach, Florida. Once there you will meet your dedicated education docent who will be your tour guide for the entire visit. The Sea Turtle Hospital at Loggerhead Marinelife Center is a unique Palm Beach experience you won’t soon forget! Enjoy up-close encounters with the Center’s sea turtle patients in 15 viewable recovery tanks, learn about Florida’s coastal ecosystems in LMC’s interactive exhibit hall, and get an exclusive, behind-the-gates tour of our indoor and outdoor sea turtle hospital areas to get a closer look at the Center’s exciting, groundbreaking rehabilitation and global conservation work.
Now it’s time to shuttle south to Manatee Lagoon and see if we can catch some of our gentle giants (manatees) enjoying the warm water outflow from FPL’s Riviera Beach Clean Energy Center next door.* Manatee Masters will personally guide you through our exhibit space, showcasing manatees and their Lake Worth Lagoon home. Located on the shores of the Lagoon, the building’s extensive observation decks offer panoramic views of the busy waterway and local landmarks.
After playing with all our friends it’s time to kick back and grab some lunch. We’ll head back to the Marina Village where you’ll have your choice to eat at the on-site Rafiki Tiki cafe or bring your own lunch and use the picnic area on our beautiful sandy beach. Food delivery is also available upon request.
Following lunch, you will have your choice to kayak or paddle board around Peanut Island. Get in the water with one of our guides and see firsthand all the beauty that mother nature has to offer (snorkel gear included upon request) and let our staff show you different wildlife while learning the history of Peanut Island, Singer Island, and Palm Beach Island.
*Conditions have to be right for manatee viewing at ML. Weather is primary determinant.

Loggerhead Marinelife Center (LMC) is one of Florida’s most unique non-profit cultural destinations focused on ocean and sea turtle conservation.
Our vision is, “to be recognized locally and internationally as the leading authority in sea turtle education, research, and rehabilitation.”
Manatee Lagoon® has a dedicated area for viewing Florida’s favorite marine mammal, the manatee, up close. The 16,000-square-foot center features engaging, hands-on exhibits for visitors to learn all about these endangered and unique creatures as well as the natural wonders of the surrounding Lake Worth Lagoon. 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.
The reborn Riviera Beach Marina Village has transformed the city’s working waterfront into a modern, vibrant and exciting destination enjoyed by both residents and visitors alike. The brand new Riviera Beach Marina Event Center is home to Rafiki Tiki restaurant, a café, and event space. The multi-million dollar re-imagining of Bicentennial Park gives visitors a relaxing space to unwind along the banks of the Intracoastal Waterway, with a stage that is home to shows, concerts and festivals.
