Houseboats, Spanish Moss, and Manatees, Oh My!

February 2016 Marina Web Exclusive

The St. Johns River unspools throughout miles of Central Florida, its banks filled with lush vegetation and Spanish Moss covered trees. With sunning alligators, turtles, otter, and the occasional manatee, this houseboating destination borders on the delightfully exotic with its distinct back country habitat.  

Holly Bluff Marina is a full service marina that offers houseboat rentals on the St. Johns River for any visitors wishing to experience Florida’s warm waterways for themselves. With swimming, canoeing, snorkeling, backpacking, and fishing to be done, it can be hard to remember to relax and enjoy the view. But with rentals like the 55-foot 8 sleeper Executive houseboat, relaxing will come naturally. The galley has lovely granite countertops and ceramic tile floors, and with touches like the crown moldings, raised panel colonial doors, maple woodwork, and spiral staircase, it’s easy to see that this rental has a feeling of luxury onboard. Three private staterooms, two full baths, flat screen TV’s in the main salon and master bedroom, indirect lighting, and a flybridge with a canopy top offer plenty of space to spread out and enjoy yourself. Whichever model you choose to rent from their fleet, a trained instructor will be there to teach you how to operate the boat when you arrive at Holly Bluff. For more information and reservation rates, check out their rental page.
