Enjoy the unique privilege that is exclusively ours here in Citrus County Florida by swimming with the manatees in the Homosassa Springs! Homosassa (Seminole Indian for ‘place where peppers grow’) is home to a large population of endangered manatee during the winter season and the lack of commercial operators in this area means less crowds and a more natural environment. The laid-back vibe in Homosassa makes this tour uniquely different than Crystal River and the undiscovered Gem that is known as the ‘Blue Waters’ by locals can be yours to discover! Having the chance to encounter these curious, gentle giants in their natural habitat is an adventure that your family will never forget!
Embark on your journey with a Coast Guard Certified Master Captain and a guide that will serve as your in water chaperon, educator and photographer. Your tour will run three hours from start to finish and everything you will need is included for one price. You will begin at our full-service tour facility in Old Homosassa, a quaint fishing village, where you will be educated about the animals and receive tips for your snorkel tour to make the most of your day. You will be taught the in’s and out’s of ‘passive interaction’ as this ensures that the animals enjoy the experience as much as we do! You will then be suited up and your boat is waiting for you at our river-front location, no transport to the dock necessary! Our Coast Guard certified covered pontoon is nicely equipped to take you and your guests in comfort, to find these gentle giants. This rich estuary and tangle of canals will amaze…..birds, fish and wildlife abound! Submerge yourself in the manatee’s world! Finish your adventure by viewing your Guide’s photos back at our facility and be sure to visit our one-of-a-kind gift shop! Our well-informed staff will direct to other local attractions, restaurants and answer all of your questions before you are on your way.
