A manatee decided to join in on the SWAT team's water training -- in none other than Manatee County.

The sheriff's office posted several photos of their SWAT team as they conducted waterborne training Thursday morning.

In the middle of the session, a manatee swam up alongside them in the water.

"An unexpected visitor decided to stop by and see what they were doing!" the agency wrote on Twitter.

"Brings new meaning to #ManateeSheriff!" they added.
