         We have been finding Florida boat tours since 1988 when we first traveled from Sarasota to
Ocala and Micanopy in our quest for Florida Secrets. On that trip we discovered the horse country,
rainbow springs and the historic home of Margorie Rawlings, not to mention the Ocala National
Forest. We also discoverd a boat tour down the Dora Canal near Mount Dora, a beautiful waterway
teeming with wildlife midst tall cypress trees.

          There are so many to enjoy. Use this resource to find the very best ones that are out there by qualified owners and naturalists  who have been plying these backwaters for years and also have an excellent safety record. For example you can take  Florida boat tours down the Suwanee River witha place in old town.

With Captain Kathe of Cortez cruise the calm, azure back bays to  view manatees, dolphins and a spectrum of marine wildlife with Captain Kathe and her First Mate Pup Pup.Select the type and length of Florida boat tours you prefer. With an eco tour you could witness manatees grazing near the boat or live crabs, conchs and other sea life retrieved by Captain Kathe.  You can even view small live bats beneath a bridge. Dolphins are seen on nearly all trips.pring-fed waters of Crystal River provide year round habitat for Florida's friendly vegetarian mammal, the manatee.
