“Inhabited year-round by a small family of monkeys”

Monkey Island sits in the middle of the Homosassa river and is inhabited year-round by a small family of monkeys. The island is owned by The Homosassa Riverside Resort. They care for the monkeys and feed them regularly. You can get an up-close look from a boat and take pictures or you can see Monkey Island from the resort grounds. You can also see the island from the public boat ramp next to MacRae’s but you’ll need binoculars to view the monkeys from there. Today there are five spider monkeys on the island. There is Ralph, the alpha male, Sassy, the matriarch and Ebony, their offspring plus two of the newest female adoptions of Eve and Emily. The two squirrel monkeys, Tiny and Tim, died of old age in 2003. New houses, play toys and enhancement features are always being added for their amusement. Visitors to our river are a constant source of entertainment for the monkey family.

My daughter, her friend and myself enjoyed some great music on the outdoor deck over looking monkey island .. The girls had some amazing sliders .. The crab cakes were delicious and I'm not sure what that special monkey mama was but Yum! Gina was our waitress she was the best .. And Conner was later he was just the sweetest young boy ever ;) everyone there was so friendly and helpful! The guest were all friendly .. It was so comfy and nice .. I was by myself (adult wise- my husband passed in February so I was taking my daughter away for Father's Day ) and it was so nice that other adults were so friendly it was amazing and made a very difficult day for me so much easier .. No one knew and yet their kindness still meant the world to my family .. Love this place! Loved seeing my daughter laugh and smile and me too!! 😊

SOOOO cool - ate at the nice little waterfront eatery that overlooked the island and got to watch the monkeys play. This is a little resort and everybody was nice to us strangers. Nice area to stay for a day or two - make sure to see the manatee reserve that is nearby - expect to spend several hours there.
