    A couple weeks back I was on the east side under the bridge coming back after the tide change. All of a sudden the fish started acting erratically. I looked up and saw a large bull shark. No. Wait. Brain..Work. Process. Not Bull. MANATEEEEEEEE!!!!!! Oh, wait, not one,two, three.. flick of the tails.. hurry up count.. four five six seven!!!!!! Gone just like that! 7 manatees! I think that big one was there again and some juveniles.. awesome!!!!!


    Then yesterday, west side, standing on one of the pilings that stretch out to the water. We were hanging around waiting to get ready, and a manatee passed by, surfaced near the sailboat, flicked its tail and was gone..

    I've been lucky enough to see a few manatees at the bridge. On one occasion, one stopped briefly (5 seconds maybe), but in all other cases the swam by quickly. Only ever got one grainy photo.... camera was in macro mode.

    I got "buzzed" by a manatee last December. In the vicinity of the snorkel trail, I saw a shadow moving towards me, then it went rapidly West towards the channel. Kind of cool to swim with it.

    I was about to get into the water when someone pointed out this little guy at BHB... He wanted to play so bad...

    No, they were just dives a BHB...

    What was amazing was the "bump" I had while diving at Alhambra at Venice Beach, FL. That's where I played with a manatee for more than an hour. He hit me on my head and wouldn't let me go for that hour. He really wanted to play... No video there, for obvious reasons...

    I see that high tides slide now into 6pm, is diving allowed this late?
