Manatee In Bimini

For over a week now, a large manatee has been seen slowly patrolling the shallow waters around Bimini. First sighted near Radio Beach on North Bimini, the manatee has been making regular swims up into the Alice Town harbour, hanging out under the docks and creating quite a sight for both locals and visitors.

While manatees are not found in large populations in the Bahamas, there are some islands that report regular sightings of these gentle marine mammals. By most people's accounts, the last time a manatee was seen in Bimini was over a decade ago.

A team of workers from the Miami Seaquarium is already on site, trying to assess the health of the manatee and determine if it should be relocated to Florida. So far, the manatee looks healthy and is behaving fine.
