Visit us to snorkel with the newly, down listed, threatened, Florida Manatee. Come visit our new Gift Shop and check-in location, located in "Old Homosassa Florida" There is no experience like it. We offer 3 to 6 hour swimming with manatee tours, in the only place in the United States where one can enter the natural habitat of an endangered(threatened) species, with the intention of enjoying some kind of interaction. We have been in business 18 years and pride ourselves on great customer service and the fact that we love what we do. We also offer dolphin sightseeing tours at 3:00 daily. Want to have fun catching your own dinner? Join us for a fun day of Scalloping. Tours available from July-Mid September.
