Little Blue, Great Blue and Tri-colored Herons, Bald Eagles, Osprey, Wood Storks, Limpkins, Anhingas, Egrets, Alligators, Turtles, Garfish, Bass and many more species thrive here and call this place home.

Some twists and turns of this river can reach depths of 35 ft or more and it’s so clear that you can see the eel-grass flowing with the current on the bottom. Exceptionally scenic! You will definitely hone your paddling skills going upstream but a first magnitude spring makes the trip back a breeze! You’ll have a chance to see lots of wildlife; alligators, turtles, otters, wading birds, hawks, owls, raccoons, wild pigs and more. See giant garfish, armored catfish, bowfin and maybe even a monkey or 12. This is a beautiful 4-5 hour tour or for the full run it's an exhilarating 6-7 hour paddling trip.

Kayaking with the Manatees on the St Johns River December 3, 2014

Today was a day for Family and Friends. With 3 generations on the St Johns River it was a fun time. The Great Blue Herons were chasing each other around sounding off like Teridactiles and the Manatees were passing by us just feet away. The Red-bellied and River Cooter Turtles were out sunning in bunches and we got to see a big Gator hiding behind the Water Hickory branches. There was a smaller 3 foot Gator soaking up some Sun and the Great Egrets, Snowy Egrets and Little Blue Herons were fishing and flying around too. The Cormorants are a comical sight sitting on the barrier for the Manatee Sanctuary, they are the Sentinels of the Spring Run... and Allijo and Hannah gave the best bird calls of the day!  

Salute to the Veterans St Johns River Yaking November 11, 2014

It was a cool morning and as we started our excursion the sun shining on our shoulders felt really good. There are several Manatees coming in now to bask in the safety of Blue Springs, their Winter home. We found many of them feeding quietly along the weed line. Up by the spring run a few stopped to take a look at our boats and around Snake Creek we found a Little Blue Heron in the white phase next to a Snowy Egret that was standing on top of a Manatee ;-). They were all feeding and this was a first for us. As the Manatee bobbed up and down it would scare minnows and insects to the surface and the Little Blue and Snowy took full advantage of the free meal! The Turtles were out sunning and birds out having a blast enjoying the cool Fall weather. It's a great time of year to be here!

Kayaking Seminole County, FL October 10, 2014

With a paddler from Norway and three Floridians we set off to explore the Wild and Scenic Wekiva River and celebrate Rosangela's birthday. This being everyone's first time kayaking we decided to head upstream. It always makes for a nice drift back ;-). Everyone did great and we had many wildlife encounters. There were lots of Anhingas out and the Little Blue Herons, Great Blue Herons and Tri-color Herons brought their colors to the river. We also got to see the Red-shouldered Hawks, Osprey and Limpkins. There were a few Alligators and Turtles out sunning and the sky was Florida blue. The river is the best place to experience Fall and the trees are starting to show off their colors too. Great weather, the celebration of life and new friends = a great day for paddling!  

Kayaking Blue Springs in Orange City, FL July 12, 2014

We started our St Johns River tour with a treat. There were 3 Manatees rolling in the water right close to us. Up they came for a quick breath then down with their tales disappearing into the dark water. The Great Blue Herons and Ospreys were out fishing and an Anhinga was sitting on a branch drying his wings. Up in Blue Springs another Manatee gave us a few more passes. The Long-nosed Gar, Mullet, Tilapia, Catfish and Bream could all be seen in the clear 72 degree water. Spanish Moss, Bartram's Air Plant and Quill-leaf all grow like crazy in this tropical oasis that is the spring run. We even found some Resurrection Fern with Butterfly Orchids blooming on the old Oak Tree. It was a wonderful day to discover Florida's wildlife.  

Kayaking near Disney June 9, 2014

As we drifted downstream on the Wekiva we got to see a lot of wildlife. There were Red and Yellow-bellied Turtles, young and old Gators, Great Blue, Little Blue and Tri-colored Herons, White Ibis, Ospreys, Anhingas and a little red Cardinal. The Wild Turkeys were sounding off in the swamps and we found a place in the river with white sand bottom to get out and take a dip. That cool water sure felt good! On the way back we met this baby Alligator with a Damsel Fly hitching a ride on his head...it was a great day to be on the river!

Kayaking near Winter Park, FL May 15, 2014

Ominous clouds were on the horizon but we trekked on and made it! As we headed up to the Spring Run the tea colored water gave way to the crystal clear and we saw tons of Long-nosed Garfish just below our kayaks. A sunning Turtle and 3 ft Gator were laying on a log just below the Live Oaks that are covered with Air Plants, Quill-leaf, Resurrection Fern and Spanish Moss. We had an encounter with a lone Manatee hanging out in the Spring and that was a cool sight. As we started back toward the island the southerly winds helped us get there. Around the island, there were lots of Great Blue Herons, young and old, out feeding and a few still in their nests. We also got to see some Great Egrets, Snowy Egrets, a Sandhill Crane flyby and a Purple Gallinule. At the end of the tour, I said goodbye to my paddling friends, loaded the kayaks and as I got in the truck, the sky opened up and poured rain...it was great timing and a great morning!
