Spring is almost here in South Florida! Soon the water temperatures will start to warm up and the seas will calm down which means locals can get back into diving. Another great reason to get out on the water and go diving is its sea turtle nesting season, which means divers will most likely encounter more sea turtles underwater.
Who doesn’t love the Manatee? This marine mammal gets the nick name “gentle giant” because they are slow moving, big (weighing in over 800 lbs), and they are friendly with humans. Just looking at photos of them you instantly want to meet them.
