WATCH: Group of mating manatees spotted near Indian Rocks Beach

Pinellas County

TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – Manatee season is over, which means most of the manatees have left Florida’s freshwater springs and returned to sea.

Over the past few weeks, scattered numbers of manatees have been seen heading toward the Gulf of Mexico.

Michael McCarthy was out on his See Through Canoe last week when he noticed a mating herd passing through the intracoastal waterway near Indian Rocks Beach.

McCarthy said the group could be seen chasing each other around the shallow area.
