A crazy Eco-Tour in citrus county, everyone does this in the ever glades but they forgot about Citrus County... Join the Captain on a adventure through this natural Ecosystem. Through the marsh lands of citrus county's coastlines, view our bi-valves or filter feeders, such as Oysters and Scallops (Scallops are seasonal). View Florida's vast species of water fowl from Brown Pelicans, Cormorants, Blue Heron, Egrets ospreys and American Bald Eagles plus over 80 different species of birds to be found. Time to set some lines to catch a few blue crab on your tour for viewing and picture taking. Enjoy close encounters of feeding birds "in the Zone" at the mouth of the Homosassa River.
Watch out as the amazing birds may fly over the boat and steel your cracker right out of your hands. Other encounters can be with Manatees and Dolphins feeding on local fish. You might see Otters chasing their small prey and perching on the shore lines. Other surprises you will encounter while journeying to the beautiful Gulf of Mexico are filled with our Mangrove Keys and the wild monkeys of Homosassa.
