I started the diesels and of we went on the yacht Delphine, right away three manatees made their way by us. They were a large medium and small in size amazingly they ran the shallows on the sides of the channel somehow knowing it was safe for their huge slow moving bodies. Turtles hurriedly plunged under as the Delphine's hull sliced her way through the crystal clear blue sea water as I made my way outside the channel. Stunned by the reefs overwhelming altra beauty my shipmates could hardly break away for some fishing. We all caught fish and enjoyed mother natures best side way way out at sea, chilling on the Delphine.
