Manatee season officially runs during the cooler weather months from November 15th through Early April. However, we see manatees all year long! We recommend earlier morning tours for a better chance to see and swim with these gentle giants! Although we definitely have a reputation for finding manatees when others don't, please remember that we may be in charge of the fun, but Mother Nature is in charge of the manatees! Call for a free manatee report at 352-322-3722! Our most popular tour times for manatee tours are 7:30, 8:00, 11:00 & 11:30! Weekend afternoons are definitely more crowded and once again, early morning tours are recommended for Manatee Tours!
Everything is Provided
Wetsuits are provided from November 15th through March 31st during colder weather! We furnish everything you need from masks, snorkels, swim noodles and your own designated expert captain that will help guide you to the Ultimate Manatee Experience!
Located on the beautiful Homosassa River! More Manatees / Less Crowded! Nothing beats a day on the water with family and friends! Our tour times book up early! We recommend booking your tour in advance but do welcome last-minute callers and hope to have you aboard for the ultimate manatee experience! Manatees are much more abundant during the cooler months of the year and that's why being on one of our heated boats and having nice warm wetsuits makes for a fantastic experience for Manatee Magic! The water in the springs is 72 Degrees all year and feels fantastic!
