About Us


Our Story

Cast away with a local born Captain on our beautiful Nature Coast. Located just south of Crystal River in Homosassa , Fl.  We provide a laid back atmosphere and a family friendly river venture like no other.  Come see wildlife in their natural habitat . From manatees to dolphins to sea turtles and everything in between, we have the best of Florida's wildlife. Choose between our 21ft skiff or our 25ft luxury Bennington pontoon(3/4 enclosure) to take on your snorkel excursion, fishing adventure or on a eco safari . Our Captains strive to show you what real Florida and her back country is all about.  Our staff has a deep love for the area and its eco system and will give you and your family a lasting memory.


Mission Statement

 our main goal is to show the world how amazing Citrus County and Homosassa  are. Our boats take you deep into the back country and just offshore of Florida's nature coast. No matter if its your first fish or your first time face to face with a 1200lbs Manatee, our guides will give you a experience only a small locally run business can.
