Canoeing with manatees in a see-through canoe ?

: (◕(' 人 ') ◕) : Oh, the huge manatees! Need a mental health break? Step on in to our transparent canoe. ?

The guy who runs the 'See Through Canoe' company in Florida makes and sells transparent canoes, and shares awesome wildlife encounters he has along the waterways of Florida. I love watching these, and find them very calming on difficult days.

There's nothing like the experience of canoeing at night. In a transparent canoe. In deep water.

From the owner and filmmaker:

Getting out & taking these videos is the best part of what I do, & I enjoy sharing them with other nature lovers. And I would still be taking and sharing these videos even if I didn't have the company.
You can follow my adventures & wildlife encounters on the See Through Canoe company FaceBook page.
