Manatees can be seen year round at this State Park dedicated to Florida’s native wildlife. See manatees, Florida panthers, American alligators and crocodiles and many other species of birds, reptiles and mammals at this amazing Park centered around beautiful Homosassa Spring. The cruise down Pepper Creek from the Visitor Center on US19 to the Main Entrance is not to be missed. The ultimate experience is inside the Park where an underwater observatory in Homosassa Springs called “The Fish Bowl” presents an incredible underwater spectacle of manatees and swirling schools of fish.
