Steve from Key West Kayak Fishing was coming in from an offshore fishing trip where reference is discovered a strange shaped object floating in the distance. On YouTube he illustrates:
All I could see were the multiple fins running down its back so I though it was some sort of palm frond, but it exactly didn’t look right. I purposed up halt and noticed that it started swimming. It was pretty crazy see it now chap so far out. I have find plenty swimming around the islands, but never one that far out. Most likely, because of the King tides that are passing it got caught in one of the speedy outgoing tides and got propagandized out to sea.
I was just within the reef so it was close to four miles from country. Most likely it would have died out there as the current that far out would most likely propagandize it East with very little chance of coming back here inshore. But “youve never” know and it could be its normal daily swimming backward and forward between Cuba and the US. Regardless, it was pretty cool see it trust me enough( versus croaking of course) to swim towards the kayak and hop on. And then for it to simply cruise along in the open sea and then just as it visualized the safety of the mangroves close by, it took a hurry and swam to beach. Pretty cool.
