The Manatee Watch

Our all day tour started at the Marine Reserve where we watched for manatees.
The water is very shallow and the manatees feed off the roots of the sea grass. The only way to find them is look for the discarded sea grass floating on the surface. While they are feeding, they surface for air about every minute.
This is all you see of them, just their snout coming out of the water, taking a breath and going back in.
Still, it was neat and interesting
