Manatees spotted at state park

Manatees spotted in Sebastian

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY — Visitors at Sebastian Inlet State Park got a close look at a half-dozen manatees that made their way into the park’s swim area last weekend.

The mammals swam in circles for at least 20 to 30 minutes. A park ranger at the beach area said the mating season for manatees had recently begun.

The state park is located at 9700 S. Highway A1A, between Sebastian and Melbourne Beach.
