Snorkeling with Manatees

Yesterday I spent a few hours snorkeling with the manatees. With dive shops galore here I was able to rent a went suit for $18. With my full face mask and fins we headed to Hunter Springs park where we kayaked with the manatees a few weeks ago. They have a swim area marked off over a vent that the manatees come to and swim past heading to springs and the open waters that they are in when the gulf is too cold. These gentle giants hover near the floor when resting to conserve energy, float to the surface to get air and go back to the floor. I had a great time and shot over 100 pictures and videos. I will not bore you with them all but enjoy the ones I have posted below. Merry Christmas from Jai & I.
Videos wont load-Ill try later.
