    You will see a manatee, but beware of there shady practices

    While the bus driver and the tour guide themselves were pretty good, our snorkeling experience was terrible. We did see a manatee, but their snorkeling partner is money hungry business that made our group wait for an hour on the boat so that they could pad on 3 more passengers. I would not recommend this operator to anyone, unless they have revised their partners.

    Manatee, park, and airboat ride.

    Enjoyed the tours and the GREAT cool temperature on the bus after being out in the heat. Wife loved the manatees, the state park was nice, and the airboat ride was fairly tame being at a place called Wild Bills. Only complaint is they should have more than 1 bottle of water per person for an 11 hour tour. At least have an ice chest of different drinks for sale during the day. That's WAY too long and WAY too hot for one bottle of water.

    Was very nice. The dive instructors were nice and helped and made sure everyone could see the manatee. The guide and driver throughout the trip made sure to maintain a pleasant environment and give information.

    This was a great experience and I would highly recommend this to anyone visiting Florida. Swimming with the manatees was an absolute privilege, such beautiful, peaceful creatures. The air boat ride was amazing! The whole family loved this experience and would do it again in a heartbeat!! All the tour guides were attentive and well informed, the food provided was more than adequate.

    This was such an amazing adventure! Swimming with manatees is something I will remember forever. The airboat at the close of the day was the perfect ending. I don't think it could have been any better.

    The bus ride was nice. Ricky put on a movie and we ate our box breakfast. We started with the manatee adventure. The whole process was fairly simple for a novice. Our Captain Casey was helpful and knowledgeable. Tonya our guide was great. On to the park. Box lunch on the bus. The food was good. I enjoyed walking through the park. Then to the air boat ride. This was a blast. Enjoyed the whole day. Thank you all.

    Snorkeling with Manatees was a soothing experience. Though you wont find many of them. Homosassa park is good for someone who loves wildlife photography.

    Had the best time. The tour guide James and driver Terrance were amazing, the guides at the manatee adventure and the airboat were also great and super knowledgeable. Food wasn’t amazing but still great to have included with the trip! The manatees were incredible to hang with, and airboat was short but fun. Overall we all had a blast.
