Family Day Out: Manatees Spotted With Calves in Florida Waters

A pair of manatees were spotted gliding along with their calves in St Petersburg, Florida, on August 27.

Footage captured by Michael McCarthy, who runs a local boat and kayak business called See Through Canoe, captured the family day out in full swing.

“As I was watching these two manatees with their calves, one of the calves came over to the paddleboard with its really large mother and circled around the front of it. The calf was really curious and followed me around for a little bit,” McCarthy told Storyful. Credit: See Through Canoe via Storyful
