  • Razor Fin Fishing Charters
    Captain Brent Sheppard, the owner of Razor Fin Fishing Charters, started out fishing largemouth bass. But once he caught a 46-inch redfish at the age of 10, he knew he couldn't go back to just freshwater fish. Nowadays, you'll find him aboard his 18-foot flats boats in Mosquito Lagoon or the Indian River, where at times the water is just 18-inches deep. If you're with Captain Sheppard, you'll be searching the shallows for redfish, tarpon, snook, trout, and Poseidon's footprints. There's no need to bring any licenses, tackle, or bait because they're all included, and the captain adapts to specific styles of fishing, from pros to those who want to see if fish really do exist.

  • American Pro Diving Center
    American Pro Diving Center helps visitors and locals explore the clear, teeming waters of Florida with year-round manatee tours and diving adventures. All-equipment-included manatee snorkel tours in Crystal River or winter expeditions to Homosassa River let snorkelers rub flippers with the rivers' large population of resident sea cows. In-water guides keep the experience safe and fun for both manatees and people, and snorkelers swim in between the gentle creatures, giving them a gentle pat or a canister of whisker wax. For deeper subterranean adventures, the center offers classes that range from Discover Scuba Diving to full PADI open-water certification, in addition to specialty courses on rescue and wreck diving. Divers can plunge into one of seven diving excursions, including night dives in Rainbow River or mermaid line dancing in the lost city of Atlantis.

  • Native Vacations
    The Native Vacations crew constantly views their surroundings with the eyes of explorers. They see opportunity on any terrain, and they search for adventure while aiming to preserve the landscape. On land, the crew coordinates horseback-riding tours that wind through the Withlacoochee Forest. As hooves beat a lazy drumroll in the dappled sunlight, riders watch deer and sherman fox pups as they dart between trees. In the waterways, Native Vacations leads kayaking tours, airboat rides, and snorkeling adventures. Kayak paddles leisurely stir waters populated by dolphins while bald eagles slip through the warm air, and airboats tear across the surface of the Crystal River with the metallic purring of RoboCop drinking warm milk. In the waters of King's Bay, guides teach snorkelers the basics of breathing underwater and allow them to pet any of the elephant-gray mammoths that approach.
