The Manatee (or Sea Cow) is a beautiful, friendly creature. Tours from Caye Caulker take you to visit these docile creatures, in their natural habitat. You can get great pictures as they surface right next to the boat. Manatees are found in many areas in Belize, but Swallow Caye off Belize City nearly always has a good concentration of them.
That area has just been declared a protected area. Most tours to see the manatees go on to visit Goff's Caye, a small, uninhabited island right on the reef. Here you can have your lunch, snorkel right off the island among the coral or just lay back and relax.
