Manatees just might be the most simultaneously beautiful and ridiculous-looking creatures on the planet. They’re incredible slow, fat, and wide, but they’ve also got an affectation that says “Come be friends with me, for I am the gentlest giant in the sea.” That being said, it must be so magnificent to see a huge group of them, swimming all together. These paddle boarders got an awesome surprise when they were paddling down the clear waters of the Weeki Wachee River. Watching the video below, it’s hard not to imagine that the manatees themselves would make great paddle boards, as they’re about the same size and move just as fast.
Tyler & Lauren get a special treat when this group of manatee swim so gracefully by them in the crystal clear water of the Weeki Wachee River. Thank-you for making SUP Weeki your paddleboard destination! Posted by SUP WEEKI on Saturday, September 12, 2015
