SIlver River

During the winter and early spring, Fin Action Charters will take you to swim with the manatees, or just look at them, if you want. The Homosassa River is a little over seven miles long flowing to the Gulf of Mexico. The headwaters are at Homosassa Springs where many manatees enjoy the warm, winter waters of the main springs. This cruise includes a boat ride to the gulf, a trip up to the head spring with an opportunity to swim with manatees.
