About the Trip
Join us the first Saturday of every month to paddle the crystal clear waters of the Silver River. Learn about flora and fauna of the area, history of Silver Springs, and see spectacular wildlife! This paddle will begin at the boat launch area at the main Silver Springs State Park entrance and go through the historic Fort King paddle trail. We will visit the headspring and 5 other springs in the area, and even pass over an old Indian Canoe that has been preserved for hundreds of years underwater. We have options available for those who have their own vessels, as well as options for those who need a vessel provided.
What does my tour include?
Your tour includes a delicious lunch, 2 awesome guides, and a whole lot of fun. We have Single Kayaks, Tandem Kayaks, and SUP's available for your adventure, with pricing options that are all inclusive.
What will I see?
On this trip you will encounter a wide variety of wildlife including friendly manatees, beautiful birds, lazy alligators, wild n' crazy monkeys, a large variety of fish, turtles, and so much more. The Silver River never disappoints.
What should I bring?
You may want to bring some other things to make yourself feel more comfortable. Some of these items may include (but are not required):
- Bug Repellent
- Polarized Sunglasses
- Sunscreen/Protective Clothing
- Waterproof Box or Bag for your Phone (You will get wet!)
- GoPro or Waterproof Camera
- A Sense of Adventure!
Remember, we are taking you onto the water in boats. There is always a chance that you could get wet, or fall out of the boat. We advise that you do not bring any valuables such as expensive electronics (like that super cool Tablet you just got last week) that are unprotected, high end jewelry that you do not want to lose (like that 220 Kt Diamond Ring you've been showing off) and please do not wear clothes that can't get dirty (Like that white Tux you've been dying to wear!) We do our best to keep you in your vessels and not in the water, but ultimately you are responsible for controlling your vessel.
Where & When do we meet?
We will meet at the Silver Springs main entrance off of State Road 40 at 5656 East Silver Springs Boulevard, Silver Springs, FL 34488 at the boat launch area at 8:30am. Our tour departs at 9:00 so make sure you are on time!
