Great experience to explore outside of the theme park locations to see the big friendly giants of the sea. I appreciate that the tour company waited for me when I was lost trying to find the pick up location in the morning, a very relaxing ride with our food provided leaving us to focus on the experience without having to run around organizing everything. I also appreciated the effort of the staff on the boat tour to try and find us manatees which unfortunately were not easy to find due to the unusually warm weather in February. The Homosassa Wildlife Park was a lovely experience and very easy to navigate around with an array of animals and bird life. The airboat ride was a fantastic finish as I had not been on one before and we were right up the front where the driver gave us a good spray of water! Overall great experience, thank you to all parties involved that made it a great day.
Captain Chris was great and Nan was just do accomafating and friendly. I saw 8 alligators on the tour and hundtefs of birds These were even cows out in the swamp eating the tall winter grass. Amazing! The Native Florida Indian show was amazing by "Little". Icon's pronounce his native name....haha. He is a very well educated and witty man who I could have talked to for hours. He lives on site in the swamp and is currently hand carving a dugout canoe. Mote Amazing! Now...the beef brisket was incredible. It was a large portion, had so much flavor, melted in your mouth and I think it was less than $10 I believe! I highly recommend and will be bringing friends back for this experience!
Totally enjoyed our outing. The weather was great at around 84 degrees and low wind. Our guide was very knowledgeable and had a great personality. Wish we spent a little more time on the different birds but we only booked for an hour -would do a longer booking as our guide said we would make more stops
This was a perfect adventure into the real Florida , at times so very peacful just tge birds and the odd splash of an oar Our tour guide was very knowlegable about the wildlife and the area The trip was done at an easy pace so no one felt rushed
We went on the Blue Spring Manatee Kayaking Tour. Tour guide was an experienced kayaking instructor. Very knowledgeable about the area, landscape and manatees. She also photographed our tour and shares photos. Would use the guide again.
