You can snorkel in the many clear natural springs.
I also have a 16 foot bass fishing boat that I rent for $40 per day or $200 for a whole week.
The fishing right in the backyard is great. The canal is over 9 foot deep so by Florida standards it is a deep fishing hole. You do not even need a fishing license to fish in the canal. You need a license to fish in the river. I also have fishing equipment that you can use for free.

This area of Florida is called the sportsmans capital of the world. You have fresh water fishing(lunker bass), saltwater fishing, crabbing, shrimping, scalloping, alligator hunting, deer hunting, wild boar hunting, boating, sailing, swimming, snorkelling and abundant wildlife viewing.
We have several fresh water springs nearby that attract manatees. Occasionally I will have manatees right in the canal in back of the house.
I have games and lots of books that you can swap for books that you have read, so bring along books that you do not need.
