The Homosassa River is a popular feeding ground for the Atlantic Tarpon, known as the 'Silver King of the Sea World.' Head down the river a short paddle to visit the world famous Monkey Island or paddle up the river to the head water of the springs to meet the friendly 2,000 pound manatee neighbors.
Homosassa and Crystal River are 2 coastal neighboring towns within Citrus County - famous for being the only place in the United States where you can legally swim with the manatees. Enjoy your very own in-the-water manatee encounters right off the boat ramp of the Upper Deck or anywhere you venture on the river.
Head to Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park only a few miles away & enjoy a pontoon boat tour to further your knowledge of the wildlife that inhabits these Florida waters. Book a fishing trip with many local fishing guides, book a manateee tour or book a scallop trip during the 90 day season July- September.
The Upper Deck is next door to SeaGrass Resort restaurant and outdoor tiki bar. Walk the other direction to Marguerita Grill, another popular restaurant and bar with outdoor waterside seating. Just a little further down the street you can visit the brand new "Crumps Landing", an enormous waterfront tiki bar & restaurant establishment.
You can kayak, boat, or walk to these coastal restaurants for an authentic Homosassa experience! Venture across the river to more waterside restaurants! "The Freezer" is famous for steamed shrimp and MaCraes is famous for their waterside "Shed" establishment and music.
