SNORKEL WITH MANATEES – Expedition #1 Crystal River, Florida

Dive Team: Dave Miller, Rosie Miller, Jacque Miller, Matt Miller, Holly Miller, Shane Miller

Dive Date: June 2008

We booked the Manatee Dive with American Pro Divers. Cruising the Crystal River we spotted several adult manatees and one baby manatee.  We entered the water and for over 30 minutes snorkeled, observed and floated with them. Matt and Dave got in trouble from the guide once for diving down and watching two manatees in their underground habitat eating sea grass. We were supposed to stay on the surface and let them come to us, which they did. We were able to touch them and gently rub them. The baby was so cute.
