Best Gift Ever
Manatee Gift Cards
Give the gift of manatee magic! Come enjoy all the beauty of these magnificent gentle giants and see why our customers say that this may be the neatest thing that they have ever done in their life! Homosassa is one of the only places in the world in which you are allowed to not only see but interact with Manatees! We take great pride in both educating our guests on how to have the ultimate Manatee experience while protecting these magnificent creatures! They are so loving and sociable that if you relax and listen to a little coaching, the Manatees may end up coming to you! We have had all ages from 2 years old to 92 years old aboard and have even had a few babies get rocked to sleep on our boat!
Scalloping Gift Cards
Give the exciting and delicious gift of a scalloping tour! Scallops are delicious shellfish, a type of bivalve mollusk, meaning the interior muscle is surrounded by two shells similarly to oysters, mussels, and clams. Inside the shell, scallops have a white adductor muscle (the part we to eat) that opens and closes the shell, as well as a bright orange section called the coral. The muscle is round and tender when cooked, with both a touch of sweetness and briny saltiness. Scallops live on top of the seafloor and depend on camouflage to avoid predators. They can actually “swim” by opening and closing their large adductor muscle to propel themselves. Don’t worry, though, they can’t swim fast or far. You don’t have to worry about chasing them. Float around, looking in the grass beds for the scallop shape or their “blue eyes”. Hold your breathe, take a dive, grab them and put them in your bag.
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!
Nature Dolphin Gift Cards
Watch their eyes light up when they open the gift of dolphins, manatees, fish, trutles, monkeys, and more! For the ultimate Nature Tour and Dolphin Watch, it definitely pays off to have a captain and guide that knows the river and can not only take our guests on a beautiful tour but share the history along the way! We attract researchers, educators, and scientists. We offer the best nature-dolphin experience for everyone.
