River Ventures was able to accommodate our large group at the very last minute and we were very grateful for their flexibility. We loved the area. There is a lot of natural beauty and we did not find it crowded at all. We took a "Splash" tour of the Homosassa River with Captain Troy, which allowed us to jump in the river and swim with the manatees. Captain Troy was extremely pleasant and attentive, we never felt like we were on the clock. We had a multi-generational group of seven ranging from 9 to 87 and all had a fantastic time. Captain Troy was very well-informed, and gave us very interesting information about the manatees, the region, the river, etc. He interacted wonderfully with the children, was very respectful of the manatees and of the rules regarding boating and interacting with the animals. We were lucky to be able to do it. There is a manatee season which ended March 31st, so we made it in the nick of time. And, even though, there were no guarantees, we got to see several manatees (including a mom with a baby) and swim close to the gentle creatures. It was the highlight of our trip to Florida.
