Re: vacation help... panama city fl to key west fl

One time through the Franklin Lock we were accompanied by a couple of manatees. They know exactly how the locks work. You'd see quite a few of them in winter near the electric plant near Ingles. lots of shallow water but well marked. They generally leave the warm water around Mar.1

Go up the St. MArks River (South of Tallahassee). 5 miles up, it branches into the St marks and the Wakulla R. Follow the Wakulla about 3 miles to US 98 bridge. Manatees hang out by this bridge and I have seen them there every time I have been over the past two years (about 6 times). They do not seem to mind people and can get sorta pushy toward people in the water. My daughter was swimming and a mom and baby manatee swam up, pushed her out of the way so they could eat grass.
BTW, def go to Cedar Key.
