How Long Can a Manatee Stay Underwater?

Answer

Manatees are a semi-social and somewhat solitary animal that can stay underwater for as long as twenty minutes. They normally come up to breathe every three to four minutes, but this may increase to every thirty seconds if they are doing something that takes a lot of energy. A manatee can either rest at the bottom of the water or just under the surface. In the winter months they migrate to warmer waters such as those in the Florida area.
