Watch out for Manatee
There are Manatee in the Rainbow River and you must go thru the waters at a low speed when using a motor boat.
We came across this sign when leaving the Withlacoochee waters for the Rainbow River. Didn't see any, but they're there!
Here's a website with some beautiful pictures of Manatees ... just incase you've never seen one either! http://www.canyonoutdoors.com/homosassa2.htm
It's the Law on Rainbow River...
By law, disposable containers and alcoholic beverages are not allowed on the Rainbow River and are subject to heavy fines! All food and drink should be in NON-disposable containers! (such as Tupperware, thermos, gladware, plastic drinking cups, etc.)
Just a warning ...
