Round Island tour – January 2, 2012

. We had the most amazing opportunity to view a large herd of manatees at Round island Park in Indian River County on this tour. It did not appear to be a mating herd. Perhaps as they often do here, they were enjoying the warmer water. These gentle giants have dwindling numbers and we all need to do our part to keep them safe. All electric motors were off and we switched to paddles and kept a reasonable viewing distance.
