ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (WFLA) - The right of way in the waters goes to the manatees.
Outdoor enthusiast Michael McCarthy with See Through Canoe spotted these manatees in the narrow creek near St. Petersburg, Florida on Tuesday.
"The manatees were heading right for us so we each moved as far to the side of the creek as possible to let them pass," McCarthy told News Channel 8.
The friendly sea cows stopped by for a quick "hello", and then went on their way.
McCarthy said although manatees are usually in larger bodies of water, they do sometimes venture into creeks like this one.
The creek was so tight it must have been hard for the beloved sea creatures to turn around.
