Snorkeling with Manatees in Belize - A Mind-boggling Experience

Click for fullscreen mode

One of the most unforgettable experiences along my travels:  

I snorkeled and swam with Manatees for the first time.

It's mating season and they can sometimes be found in the North Channel of the Belize Barrier Reef. It's a rare sight but I got lucky and saw two at a time, just a few feet from me!  

Mind-boggling to be so close to such huge but gentle and endangered species!
