Humans are the only known danger for these gentle giants, the manatee, primarily from those boating and fishing, carelessly throwing filament line in the waters. As Home of the Manatee, we proudly uphold the rules and regulations written for the purpose of keeping them around for generations to come.
Some of these rules include, but are not limited to:
There are hefty fines for not abiding by these rules. the manatees do like attention, especially liking their bellies scratched and appear to thrive on interacting with friendly humans. The experience of swimming with manatees is a life altering occurrence in itself. Visitors come from around the globe to snorkel and play with the manatee in its natural habitat.
