Two manatees, very close to the shore. Probably mating, but you can't really see what's happening underwater.
Not great photo... But whiskers on face were clearly seen. Very long body.
Total of eight, including one calf. Three had boat strike scars.
Seen at the viewing center.
The West Indian manatee (Trichechus manatus) is a manatee, and the largest surviving member of the aquatic mammal order Sirenia (which also includes the dugong and the extinct Steller's sea cow).
