Trying to decide what snorkeling trips to take, and with who. Any recommendations out there? We'd really like to get up close and friendly with some manatees. Doe's anybody on AC offer such an experience? Waiting to hear from y'all. Thanks, BooBoo

Don't believe that is allowed; manatees have a fragile skin protection, and when snorkelers touch them, they get infections. There are combined manatee/snorkeling trips, but you get to snorkel in Shark Ray Alley, and not with the manatees.


Live and let live
