Eco Discovery Tour
A new collaboration between Get Wet Watersports, Loggerhead Marinelife Center, Manatee Lagoon – An FPL Eco-Discovery Center® -and now the Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line – that is sure to be an adventure you’ll always remember!
Come with family, friends, or by yourself and explore how our marine and sea life ecosystem grows with such beauty here in South Florida. Get Wet Watersports, The Loggerhead Marinelife Center, and Manatee Lagoon – An FPL Eco-Discovery Center™ have all teamed up with the Marina Village to give you a private and completely customized eco-tour like no other.
Our shuttle service will pick you up from Marina Village or the Port of Palm Beach cruise terminal to our first stop of the day, 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 Lake Worth Lagoon, the building’s extensive observation deck offer panoramic views of the busy waterway and local landmarks.
Now it’s time to shuttle north to 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.
If you are participating in the half-day excursion, you will be transported back to the Port of Palm Beach cruise terminal upon completion of your tour at Loggerhead Marinelife Center. For guests on the full-day excursion, after playing with all of our friends at Loggerhead Marinelife Center, it’s time to kick back and grab some lunch. We’ll head to Marina Village where you’ll be served pizza, salad and soft drinks included in the package price. You can also eat at the on-site RafikiTiki Café or, upon special request, a variety of food delivery options are available.
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 – AN FPL ECO-DISCOVERY CENTER®
Manatee Lagoon is dedicated to educating the public about manatees and Lake Worth Lagoon, and inspiring communities to preserve and protect Florida’s environment and wildlife for future generations. 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.
