Manatee Tours - Weird Statues

A sign advertises "Manatee Tours," but the unofficial attraction is a wild assortment of statues and theme park castoffs -- a shark, mermaids, a mer-toddler, Fred Flintstone.

Manatee Tours - Weird Statues

Stopped by today, Dan the owner was outside working. What a wonderful man. Took time to teach about his Manatee Snorkeling tours. Then spent about 10 min or so taking some crazy selfies. If you are in the area.

Yeah, it looks sketchy, but that's 1/2 the fun. The husband and wife team do a great manatee tour and are very knowledgeable. They will make sure you see a manatee and spotted some so far away we were doubtful -- but there they were!

Rode here on my Harley. Little bit of a gravel road entrance, but it smooths out after you enter the parking area (or you can park your motorcycle in the next door business paved driveway). We really enjoyed the art, fun friendly atmosphere. Staff was on hand, although the storefront is closed until the manatees return, and he was friendly and did not mind us looking around and taking photos. He even told us about the artwork that was being currently under construction in the back of the property. He said if we were interested to to take a look as it was very unique!

Stopped here on a whim. Was a little unsure what to expect, but ended up going on a snorkeling tour with Lisa and Dan, the owners of the business and art. The art is unique and some of it makes you scratch your head. It was a fantastic stop and side adventure.
