Manatee at Hol Chan Channel

Another great picture submitted to us by our good friend Carlos Ayala of Carlos Tours in Caye Caulker. While out at the Hol Chan channel on Tuesday, May 27, a friendly manatee swam up to the divers and snorkelers. This is a rare occasion as manatees tend to stay close to the coast line near the mangrove areas. They are herbivores and eat only marine plants.
