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!
Our guide was very informative and knowledgeable...answered all of our questions and even shared his personal experiences regarding alligators. I would suggest the 1 hour tour as it gave us the time to really enjoy the experience. I would highly recommend this activity.
Tour was overall very good. The bus driver was very nice, prompt and polite but we couldn't really hear all he was saying in the back. He should get a microphone for the tours-- I think it would really make a big difference.
Jason gave a very thorough description of the Space Center and what was recommended to see during the six hour day. He was extremely knowledgeable of the entire Space Center.
