While it is entirely possible that a manatee species could have adapted to remain semi-amphibious, it is also possible that a species or rogue group of walrus was once found on and around the island. Walruses would have not been a known sight amongst travelers in the area, and their fat bodies could be mistaken for a manatee, especially if those seen were young and/or a
particularly tuskless species.
With this in mind, the walruses would have had to have traveled a great distance to reach St. Helena, as they are not normally seen much further south than Scandinavia.
More likely, the creatures are possible misidentifications of either sea lions or southern elephant seals especially the latter as the species once bred on the island (see the external link).
