Manatees



The intro to video is a bit awkward, but give it a minute. Hopefully, they won't take it down either, because of the advertising by the Dive Shop.

The beginning of the snorkel/dive was incredible. Well, it took a little time, at first I didn't encounter any manatees and started to think what the faq... it this trip a scam?  But then they appeared.  I was off by myself snorkeling and this huge manatee approached me and just hung out. I scratched it. It turned around on it's belly, wanting it's belly to be scratched. When I stopped, it turned around staring directly in my face. It is truly was a weird and curious animals.

I still can't get over how big they are.... and weird!
