Holly Bluff Marina offers houseboat rentals on the beautiful St. Johns River in Central Florida. The St. Johns River offers mile after mile of breathtaking view and pristine beauty. Spanish Moss draped trees line the banks of the river and the many lakes that dot the northerly course of the river. There is an abundance of wildlife: alligators, turtles, otter, deer, and raccoon. You may even see manatee (sea cows) grazing on the grasses along the river's shore.
The natural lush landscape is home to a great variety of exotic birds such as the blue heron, osprey, eagles, hawks and owls. Relax and see the wonders of Florida's back country from the deck of one of our luxurious houseboats. See live alligators basking in the sun in their natural habitat. Explore our warm water springs where the endangered manatee spend winters in the crystal clear 72 degree water.
Holly Bluff Marina is located just North of Hontoon Island State Park, 3 miles from Blue Springs State Park, home of the endangered Manatee.
Fill your days relaxing as you cruise the river from the comfort of your houseboat, or entertain yourself with a variety of activities such as swimming, canoeing and snorkeling. The area provides many places for hiking and backpacking through shaded hammocks. Anglers, professional and amateur alike, brag about the fishing on the St. Johns River, it's connecting lakes and coves.
