The Homosassa Springs Wildlife Park contains one of the most unique features in the world; an underwater "fish bowl" that you descend into and observe the mammoth manatees as they swim gracefully in their natural environment. The warm spring-fed waters serve as a home to these gentle, prehistoric giants during the cooler winter months. Manatee tours are also available from many local snorkel and dive shops that surround the area.
Homosassa is also famous for its boating and fishing. The crystal clear spring-fed waters are home to some incredible snook as well as many species of other fish. The Homosassa River empties into the Gulf of Mexico and offers a gateway to excellent saltwater fishing. In fact, the world record tarpon was caught just off the coast of Homosassa, Florida.
