The address for Manatee Lagoon is:
6000 N Flagler Dr, West Palm Beach, FL 33407
It is about an hour drive to this location in Riviera Beach.
I encourage you to carpool to the event. You can find out who is going and see who is interested in carpooling at the dive club meeting.
Our next Social Event will be held on Saturday, February 3, at 10:30 am (the date was changed from Sunday, Feb. 4 so there would be no conflict for those who may have plans for Super Bowl Sunday).
This is a fun-filled day for everyone including children and grandchildren.
The club will meet at 10:15 am in time for the Manatee Expert Lecture at 10:30am, however, the center opens at 10:00 am so people are welcome to come early to check out the exhibits.
