I'd like to be, under the sea

with the manatees!!!!!
I was thinking of trips I wanted to take in the near future
and I definitely want to swim with some manatees.

Florida is the place to go for this.
I liked the "Swim with the Manatees" site the best.
Loacted in Homosassa, Florida.
They say that the best season to swim is from November to March,
It costs 50$ per person, and you get all your snorkel gear and an
underwater camera!
Tours leave at 6am and 9am, but they note that
earlier swims are best. I guess Manatees are morning creatures.
I'm definitely not, but I could be if i got to hang out with sea cows all day!
Beforehand they will give a quick snorkeling intro,
and show you a video on "manatee manners".
It also sayd that the manatees may roll over and
let you scratch their bellies! They are like big aquatic dogs! Oh i love it!
