  • It was very near the sea turtle. I visited businesses as well as many tourists. I think without feels a little cramped in the large body of manatees neither are seen in close valuable. Was watch the scene exactly as was bait in the feeding and eating vegetables.

  • Beautiful Manatee near the Aquarium. I suddenly realized that this is like free area. (I always Churaumi Aquarium from the road? The thought was going in, so the pay area) and twirl the Manatee looked cute.

  • Manatee get in free if you exit the Aquarium. Manatee is laid back and just looked a little relaxed swimming, so. I was eating the vegetable.
