Cool view of 300 manatees gathered in St. Pete

Pinellas County

The manatees seem to be liking the warmer temperatures in Tampa Bay this week.

Our friends at See Through Canoe were able to get an aerial view of more than 300 manatees gathering in St. Petersburg on Monday.

Did you know that a gathering of manatees is called an aggregation?

This aggregation had several calves.

“There were a lot of calves in the gathering and one mother had twins with her. It’s rare that manatees have twins,” See Through Canoe posted on its Facebook page.

Yes, Manatees can be seen all year long in St. Pete and in locations in the southern half of Florida.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission now says roughly 7,500 to 10,300 manatees swim in state waters, a significant increase from previous estimates of roughly 6,000.
