Close Encounter Between Boat and Manatee
Broward County > Manatees > Close Encounter Between Boat and Manatee

This boat/manatee near-miss was photographed during the Broward County biweekly aerial manatee survey. The boater never appeared to see the manatee, even though water clarity was superb.  Fortunately, the boater was obeying posted speed zone signs and the manatee was able to avoid the collision!
