Wonderful trip. We sow a lot of manatees, they were in the water close to the beach. We swam with them and observed them from the boat. Guide was very knowledgeable and told us a lot of interesting facts about manatees.
After that we had a wonderfull lunch in a small restaurant.
In the afternoon we visited a wild life park. There was a manatees feeding show and ranger shared his experience of taking care about manatees.
It was a great day. The best of my Orlando experience.
