The Homosassa Park was definitely worth a visit. There are many guys that provide you with information. The amount of animals is huge. Even if in this time of the year most of manatees are abroad, there are still a few lazy ones there.

Made this stop as part of a day trip to Cedar Key. This park turned out to be the highlight....as Cedar Key in Mid August on a Tuesday was dead and tide was out. Free boat or tram ride to the park. $16 adult admission. Got there at 9:30am and was done by 11. Not many people but that works... More

We hadn't visited the park for several years. Now that we have an annual Florida state park pass. We wanted to revisit this wonderful park. So mane improvements . I loved the large enclosed bird aviary. An absolute must for any bird lover . The boat ride to the park is well worth the trip. The long boardwalk under the... More

As a person without kids I myself wasn't impressed, it was clean and it was nice to see the animals and the Lou was the highlight..but would I go again because it was so fun, no. It is a neat place to bring friends and family from out of town. It is reasonably priced and kids will enjoy it.

The park was clean and the people wer e very friendly. The animals are happy and we'll cared for. The best part was having been so close to the animals, whilst still feeling very much safe.

This is a very nice park to visit. A great opportunity to see some unique wildlife. The manatees were amazing, as were all the birds, and the hippo. We really enjoyed the boat ride into the park. The size of the park is just right in that you can get through it in less than 3 hours, without missing anything.

Nice boat ride over to the actual wildlife park which was wonderful. Large assortment of animals, birds. My favorite was the underwater viewing room for the manatee. Don't miss it!

My wife and I first visited this place 20 years ago on our honeymoon and we returned with our 3 children. The place is very much as we remembered it although there are now 2 entrances. The main entrance from the main road involves either a short land train or boat ride to the West Entrance. We just drove around... More

We had always planned to go here on our visit to the area and took the opportunity on an overcast afternoon. I had read some reviews and partly expected a slightly run-down zoo but was more than pleasantly surprised. The whole place was clean and tidy, with large area's for the animals in amongst the woodland, so keeping things natural... More
