There are at least two manatees in Skull Creek -- a large one about 8 feet long and a smaller one four to five feet long. They look like a dolphin swimming slowly just beneath the surface, but they won't get out of the way of your boat.
The large manatee has many propeller scars on its back.
Please keep a sharp lookout and slow down or take evasive action if you notice any animal in the water that might be a manatee.
Never miss a local story.
