#1 of 49 Outdoor Activities in Homosassa
Our group of six were fitted with wetsuits, instructed how to interact with the gentle giants, helped aboard the heated and enclosed boat and taken to the crystal clear water teeming with manatees.
The kayaks were comfortable because we wore warm clothes and some curious manatees did pop up to visit us, but for the up close and personal encounter, snorkeling in a wetsuit is the way to go.

It is surprising how many interesting things there are to see -- beautiful homes, lots of islands, trees, birds and usually dolphins and/or sea cows -- and just the thrill of the air boat ride.
Shana & Jodi from River Safari were very helpful answering our questions the day before too, which set us on our way for a great day of kayaking with manatees the day before!

We love this company for their conservation ethos and manatee ethics - everyone involved helps you respect the manatees and their environment, and as a result we got great interaction with the manatees.
The ride to the location of our snorkel was very informative with tidbits of the history of the area and going over the safety of the boat plus the rules and how to behave when snorkeling with the manatees.

It was very comfortable as the weather was very chilly and we were provided with hot chocolate, coffee and snacks to warm us up after swimming with the Manatees.
Also I was glad we did the semi private tour, it was a group of 6 of us which made it much easier to see the animals, we didn’t have to fight a crowd to see the Manatee.

Because of a scheduling glitch, Captain Paul let us join a longer ride without charging us the difference, and he even exceeded that time frame since we were all having fun.

However, Captain Tom made the trip informative and definitely entertaining along with First Mate Mike who did help the others find a momma / baby manatee !! And let me tell you, he makes an awesome hot chocolate too!
The extra time also provided us flexibility to go to different locations and see/experience the manatees in their natural environments as well as swim up into Three Sister and see the natural springs.

Fishing tiny pockets of deep water adjacent to shore, the redfish were cooperative and in a matter of minutes we were reeling in bullish, slot-limit reds that did their best to resist coming to hand.
I have been out fishing with Captain Mike at least 20 times over the last couple of years, and he has ALWAYS put me on fish ALWAYS!!!
