Second time staying off site down the road a bit in a condo.
5/5 to 5/26
10+ trips to Vero. We still stop in at the resort for lunch and/or dinner! My points don't allow me to stay there that long

Could you be here now?

On the manatee topic:
We found the parking area by the electric plant, but no signs of where to go for observing manatees. The area was completely fenced off. What were we missing?

We shot over from WDW to Merritt Island a couple times to see the manatees, but that's an hour north of Vero Beach. We are driving down from MD, so we could stop in on the way down.

Also, DH just found a zoo (Brevard Zoo) that now has a canopy (zipline) tour. He wants us to do that, but I think it's also a bit of a hike from Vero Beach, no?

Hi, from Vero!

The activity is called Bubbles! My DF had an idea about what it would be like, and we had fun!

We will be there one month from today!!! Yipeee!!!!!

All booked!!! Thanks everyone on here for help and suggestions.

April 26-30 in an Ocean View Inn room.

We were planning to go sooner so we haven't looked at what's going on during the end of April. Any suggestions or tips?

Hey Deb, Strictly a typo... trust me, had some silent comments about your length of stay.

Turtle Walks

Where would I find information about the turtle walks where you get to watch the turtles lay eggs? Does Disney do one themselves or is it through other companies? Also, does anyone do them in late May or is it just too early for the turtles to make their nests then? Any information would be much appreciated.

I found this website http://myfwc.com/WILDLIFEHABITATS/Se...ties_Walks.htm
and the information below. Is it up to date?
Does Disney do any turtle walks in MAY?

How can I see sea turtles?
Sea turtle nesting and hatching season runs May-October. Most of the turtle
nesting takes place from June-August, and hatchlings emerge about 60 days
after the nest is made. There are a number of night-time walks organized that
allow small numbers of the public to view the nesting phase, but the hatchling
phase is far too dangerous to view and there are no legal public walks to
view hatchlings. If you would like to see a hatchling, there are morning
"Turtle Troops" at the resort three times a week where the naturalist takes
you to look at the nests. Once hatchlings begin emerging, it is not uncommon
for there to be hatchlings that did not make it left behind, and you may get a
chance to see one of those.

If you are at Vero during nesting, there are various places to arrange for a
turtle walk. First, the resort offers a turtle walk lottery on Wednesdays and
Thursdays. Guests can place their room keys in a lottery at 10am, and enough
keys are drawn to fill 20 slots on the tour. There is no charge, but space is very
limited and the walk takes place on the beach @ the resort where there is about
a 50% chance that you will see a turtle.

On Tuesdays, the Caribbean Conservation Corporation hosts a free turtle walk
through Sebastian Inlet State Park. (321-985-4852) You must reserve a spot
ahead of time, and a total of 20 people are allowed on the beach. This takes
place in the Archie Carr National Wildlife Refuge, a few miles down from
Disney's Vero Beach Resort and has a 80% success rate for finding and viewing turtles.

The Caribbean Conservation Corporation also sponsors an "Adopt-A-Turtle"
program on Monday nights. There is a charge for this (I believe it is 20$ plus
10$ for each additional person in the group). This also takes place in the
Archie Carr Refuge and you must make reservations. Contact number is 1-800-678-7853.

I personally recommend one of the CCC walks, since you can make
reservations ahead of time and have a much higher chance of seeing a turtle nesting.

Unless something has changed, they are 12 cup coffee makers and use the large basket filter.

We're in an OVIR and we do have a 12 cup coffee maker.


Today we saw a manatee at the Ft. Pierce Manatee Observation Center. It's a very worthwhile trip!
