Monkey Island

Monkey Island

An unusual attraction found in Homosassa is Monkey Island.  The Island is located in the Homosassa River.  The Island was created in the 1960’s from a pile of dangerous rocks in the river.  Monkeys were added and allowed to run free on the Island. 

The monkeys were originally at the Wild Life Park just down the river. The monkeys were always escaping their enclosure.  To keep them safe they were moved to the island.  Boats are not allowed to dock on the small island so you can watch them from a safe distance form the shore or the docks.  Don’t worry the monkeys are fed twice a day and taken very good care of.
