We left the dock and 10 minutes later... Here is the short video of
snorkling with the manatees on Crystal River

Great video! I was there a couple of years ago and had a blast.

It was my first time and I fell more in love with them.
Beautiful creatures

It was the company I was with that made this weekend trip a blast.
I'm a real lucky guy.. To have and be around such good people...

Check out American Pro.. They are the ones that took us up river
in search to the manatees.. Great organization.

Cheers,

I forgot to mention.. There is a small cavern (Kings Springs) you can dive
before/after the manatees...
That is what we did... On our way to King Springs we found the two manatees.. We stopped, got into the water... listen to mom grunt.. then the
baby (a boy) hung around us (the video) while mom (like all moms) took the
opportunity to rest... Phew she said... I can finally get a little rest... She told
her son, stay where I can see you! and the baby said, but mom... they're only
humans... and the rest is on video...
