Manatee Drops By To Say Hello To A Girl On A Paddleboard

Celine Chasteen was out paddleboarding with a friend in Jupiter, Florida, when she had a rather surprise encounter with a local celebrity of sorts, a manatee. Evidently, he’d seen her passing by and decided to drop by to say hello.

“We were going along the coast and I saw what I thought were rocks, but then they started moving,” Chasteen said. “The next thing I know, there’s a manatee putting his flippers on my board.”

“At first, I was like, ‘What is going on?’ But honestly, it was so cool. I’ve never experienced anything like that before,” Chasteen said, adding: “I thought he was really cute. He was really nice and stuff. I hope he drops by again.”
