Our tours are conducted on the Homosassa River and the Homosassa Springs and have no more then 6 guests.  After your swim you will come back aboard to a heated cabin.  We are sure that you will be satisfied.  If you have anything electrical you need to bring along such as, Camera, chargers, hair dryers etc. feel free to do so. Most of our boats have invertor or generator service for your convenience.  Do you have a big family or group?  If so we can also accommodate up to a max of 12 guests via two houseboats parked side by side.  Sounds like alot of fun, right?  Just call well enough in advance so we can arrange it for you.  The manatee tour is 2-3 hours in duration but can be extended at time of booking to 4 hours for only an additional $99.00. So with all these amenities what are you waiting for? Lets go swim with the friendly manatees on your very own all inclusive private tour. All tours subject to availability please call ahead. We hope to see you soon.
