Seems odd..if I were on a tour with a reckless boat Captain going fast in a area with manatee or actually on any river or through any mangrove I would scream bloody murder...I am shocked sometimes here on Caye Caulker when at the split how many boats ignore the no wake rule. They plow through at high speeds with no regard to swimmers and snorkelers. Sadly we have had a few humane deaths. The boats are never tour boats but private usually operated by the owner in a hurry to get somewhere...not a guide so no license no nothing to loose....The last death was a guy hauling liquor to the north side..I think most tour guides are conscientious to conservation..its the uneducated uninformed boat owner that may be the problem.
Now we again have children shooting and killing the Osprays here..EDUCATION....but since the water taxis have raised the cost for the kids to get off island to school from $10 to $30 a day..education wont happen.....LOL
