While touring Homosassa River in search of manatees, your Captain will teach you about manatee and their habitat, and answer any questions you may have. 

You may also expect to see Bald Eagles, dolphins, otters, wild pigs, raccoons and a large array of local and snow birds. 

Once the captain has found some friendly manatees, the anchor will be dropped and everyone will quietly enter the water to interact properly with the manatees.

 You may be allowed to take pictures, swim/snorkel with the manatees, and even, if the manatees allow, touch these amazing creatures. Snorkeling with manatees tours are conducted all year long, although many of the manatees will leave the area during the Spring and Summer months, however, King’s Bay boasts a year round manatee population.

Manatee Tours are conducted throughout the year Reservations are required
