Great experience to explore outside of the theme park locations to see the big friendly giants of the sea. I appreciate that the tour company waited for me when I was lost trying to find the pick up location in the morning, a very relaxing ride with our food provided leaving us to focus on the experience without having to run around organizing everything. I also appreciated the effort of the staff on the boat tour to try and find us manatees which unfortunately were not easy to find due to the unusually warm weather in February. The Homosassa Wildlife Park was a lovely experience and very easy to navigate around with an array of animals and bird life. The airboat ride was a fantastic finish as I had not been on one before and we were right up the front where the driver gave us a good spray of water! Overall great experience, thank you to all parties involved that made it a great day.
Captain Chris was great and Nan was just do accomafating and friendly. I saw 8 alligators on the tour and hundtefs of birds These were even cows out in the swamp eating the tall winter grass. Amazing! The Native Florida Indian show was amazing by "Little". Icon's pronounce his native name....haha. He is a very well educated and witty man who I could have talked to for hours. He lives on site in the swamp and is currently hand carving a dugout canoe. Mote Amazing! Now...the beef brisket was incredible. It was a large portion, had so much flavor, melted in your mouth and I think it was less than $10 I believe! I highly recommend and will be bringing friends back for this experience!
This trip was absolutely outstanding. Gino our guide and driver went above and beyond to keep us informed and knew so much history about each location as we went through the towns. It was a day well spent and away from the hustle and bustle of Disney atmosphere. The scenic boat ride was so relaxing. Highly recommend.
Totally enjoyed our outing. The weather was great at around 84 degrees and low wind. Our guide was very knowledgeable and had a great personality. Wish we spent a little more time on the different birds but we only booked for an hour -would do a longer booking as our guide said we would make more stops
Was a great ride, but wish we were able to see more gators, only got to see one. Capt. Roy was wonderful, and had some great stories and answered a lot of inquisitive kids.
