The Curious Manatee

Last month I took a short break from filming in Key Largo to spend some time exploring the majestic Crystal River, which is about two hours north of Tampa. For as long as I can remember I’ve wanted to shoot video of the manatees in Crystal River. It is by far one of the most unique areas of Florida, and you should definitely pay a visit!

Check out this short clip from the shoot:

This manatee caught me in his peripheral vision and then slowly turned to come check me out. His friend was curious about me as well.

P.S. – I am working on a two-minute doc profiling the Three Sisters Springs Run in Crystal River, which I will share soon, along with more behind-the-scenes content!
