Incredible manatee encounter for man in see-through canoe

A man on a clear canoe had an incredible encounter with manatees off the coast of St. Petersburg.

See Through Canoe posted video of the encounter on its Facebook page showing dozens of manatees in the water and one of them curious about the canoeist.

"This guy drove 12 hours yesterday just to go on a tour with See Through Adventures," the company posted on Facebook.

"He ended up having one of the best manatee encounters ever when a manatee came up to his See Through Canoe and pushed him around for a while," the post said.
