     Fewer people, fewer boats and shallow water means a great tour with an up-close encounter. You need to try this tour. We promise this encounter to be the best. The Homosassa River is very shallow and good for those of all ages.  After your tour you can experience the Homosassa Wildlife Park or a crazy Air-boat Ride, just a few minutes from your manatee encounter.
