Where to See Manatees in Fort Myers

Manatee Park isn’t the only place to see manatees in the wild in the Fort Myers area. During the winter months, head to Lovers Key State Park at the southern end of Fort Myers Beach, where manatees often gather in the warm waters of the canals. Park staff will let you know if sightings are likely.
