Don’t miss out on this special nighttime Meteor Shower River Cruise!!!!

April 21st & 22nd / Depart: 7:30pm.
Homosassa River, FL.
$65 Per Person / Adults 18+

We will cruise down the Homosassa River as the sun sets to the Gulf of Mexico where we’ll get a great view of the night sky.

You never know what kind of surprises and wildlife we will see on the way out including dolphins, manatees, birds and more!

On our way back upriver, we will be watching for shooting stars to streak across the sky!!!

The Lyrids Meteor Shower is an average shower, producing about 20 meteors per hour at its peak.
These meteors can sometimes produce bright dust trails that last for several seconds.
The thin crescent moon will set early in the evening leaving dark skies for what should be an excellent show.

Best viewing will be from a dark location.

Meteors will radiate from the constellation Lyra but can appear anywhere in the sky.

We also learn about the different constellations and how the Native Indians and sailors used the night sky for navigating. This is an adventurous and educational interpretive cruise!
