River Cruises You can pick the boat trip that fits you – no matter which river tour you select, you’ll enjoy great scenery and the opportunity to see wildlife.
Cruise to the Springs
A perfect boat tour any time of the  year, a river tour to the headwaters of  the Homosassa River is a great way  to see a glimpse of Old Florida and  maybe a manatee along the way  (especially in the cooler months when  manatees congregate in the springs  for warmth).
You’ll take a scenic boat ride on the Homosassa River to the Gulf of  Mexico, enjoying the local flora and  fauna along the way, including a  possible encounter with a dolphin or  two. As with all boat tours, The Captain narrates, pointing out  opportunities for wildlife viewing  along the way.
Our Captains know the area waters and can transport you to Old Florida on a cruise through the hauntingly beautiful backwaters of the St. Martin’s Aquatic Preserve. Just as with our other boat tours, wildlife viewing opportunities are always a possibility.

Our Captains know where the scallops are (he’s also known as the “scallop whisperer” here in these parts!) and can help anyone learn how to find these wonderful delicacies. Shade and comfortable seating is available on our well- equipped vessels.  We don’t just drop you off when we return to shore either. If you need help cleaning your catch, our captains are there to show you how and to help clean the scallops, as well.

Cost: $250 per snorkel trip for 4 people, $50 each additional person up to six passengers. Includes snorkeling equipment. Wet suits available for rental. Duration: Full day Reservations required.
