Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park is one of the best places in the state of Florida to view manatees. The water boiling out of the 40-foot basin arrives here from the Homosassa spring shed that covers 270 square miles across Citrus and Hernando counties. The above-ground activities by people in the spring shed directly impact, either positively or negatively, the quality and quantity of water exiting the springs. These springs form the head of the Homosassa River, which calmly flows west for 8 miles before reaching the Gulf of Mexico.

One of the unique features of the Homosassa headspring is that the main vent flows from three points underground with each vent having different salt content and water quality. The three sources blend together in the basin before exiting down the spring run and into the Homosassa River. Given this, the Homosassa Spring is filled with a variety of saltwater and freshwater fish species, but is perhaps best known for its historic value as a warm water haven for wintering West Indian manatee.
