The guided trips/tours offered through Paradise Found Island Retreat are listed below and priced accordingly. With an expert as your guide, you'll be sure to learn something while being able to view an abundance of wildlife in the "Real Florida".

One of our favorites is the Land of Oz Walkabout. This trip leaves from the wonderful world of Oz (Ozello) right from the island and features clear, shallow, open water. We go where the wind and tide takes us, hence the name Walkabout. Eagles in winter, wading birds. Dolphins can appear at any time. Trip features 2 stops to explore pre-Columbian shell middens. Please take back nothing but memories. $45 per person

King's Bay and King's Bay Manatee Kayaking
Citrus County is probably best known for its manatee or "sea cow" population. The waters of Citrus County are the winter home of upwards of 400 West Indian Manatees (Trichechus manatus latirostris). This accounts for 15%-20% of the Florida population. These unique creatures are listed as endangered by both state and federal governments and Citrus County has adopted additional measures to further protect the species. The animals frequent King's Bay in Crystal River and the Blue Waters area of the Homosassa River with peak numbers occurring during cold snaps from October through April. $40 per person
