|Homosassa Springs Wildlife Park is a showcase for Florida wildlife offering visitors a rare opportunity to observe these animals, birds and plants in their natural setting. Fascinating nature programs are offered daily on West Indian Manatees, alligators, crocodiles, Florida snakes and other wildlife. A huge spring, from which millions of gallons of fresh clear water bubbles every hour, is the centerpiece of this 210-acre park and is the headwater of the Homosassa River
Visitors can cruise Pepper Creek on tour boats and enjoy the sights and sounds of a hydric hammock. Along the unspoiled nature trails dear, bobcats, otters and cougars can be studied at close range.
Many varieties of birds, from colorful wood ducks and flamingos to majestic birds of prey, herons and egrets, also make Homosassa Springs their home.
|The most interesting encounter of the natural attraction is the floating observatory, where you can go below the water's surface to view the thousands of fresh and saltwater fish and manatees, Florida's endangered marine mammals. Homaosassa Springs is one of the only places in the world where manatees may be observed at close range 365 days a year.
