The water is so clean and clear. So very different from the river and lake waters which are a “tea” color from the tannin in leaves.
We really enjoyed watching them. The video was taken from our inflatable dingy as I floated past them. We never use the outboard motor when they are near. Look closely….the light colored marks on their bodies are “prop scars” where they weren’t able to get out of the way quick enough.
We were amazed at how many boats came in and out and never even noticed the Manatees.
