Our most recommended Crystal River Swim with Dolphins

  • Homosassa: Gulf of Mexico Airboat Ride and Dolphin Watching

    1. Homosassa: Gulf of Mexico Airboat Ride and Dolphin Watching

    Glide through the saltwater marshes and shallow waters of the Homosassa River and Gulf of Mexico aboard a powerful airboat. Look for bottlenose dolphins and other wildlife in their natural habitat to reconnect with nature. Feel the speed beneath you as you twist and turn through the mangroves, canals, and backwaters. Access areas that other boats can't reach and encounter abundant wildlife off the beaten path. Marvel as your US Coast Guard Captain and guide safely pilots the boat at speeds of up to 50 miles per hour. Get an adrenaline rush as you traverse the waterways and soak up the natural beauty on all sides. Every day is different when it comes to the wildlife, but a morning ride is highly recommended if you hope to encounter animals in the wild. The diverse birdlife will truly amaze you, while West Indian manatees can sometimes be seen on a good day.

    Our guide, Irish Dave, was teriffic. Lots of knowledge of the river, mangroves, birds and sea life. Stopped to see about 20 sharks from hammerhead, black tip and tiger. All in all, I highly recommend Irish Dave.

Better than any amusement park and absolutely peaceful! Captain Fish was amazing and very personal and educational! My family will definitely be going back!

This was a birthday gift for my wife and our daughter went along. It was our first airboat ride. It was great. Great way to see the river and Gulf.

Gavin was awesome and informative. We saw two sting rays.

Mike Fish our captain made the excursion very enjoyable.
