Silver River 

Silver Springs, the second largest spring in Florida, creates the Silver River. 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.

Level of Difficulty: Must be in good shape or you will be when you’re done ;-)

St Johns River kayaking - A Wildlife Odyssey

Suzanne paddled a birding tour with us yesterday and today Jana joined us too! With the first cold front of the year all the birds are arriving from their northern haunts. The Pied-billed Grebes, Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers, Eastern Phoebes, Bald Eagles, American Bitterns and Kingfishers are all down to enjoy some Florida sunshine. We got to see tons of other birdlife too. Ospreys, Red-shouldered Hawks, Limpkins, Anhingas, Black and Turkey Vultures, Great Blue and Little Blue Herons and Great Egrets just to name a few. The Manatees are back. We got to see 6 of them in the clear spring run and some others that were heading out to feed. Today was a great St Johns River wildlife odyssey.

Kayaking the generous St Johns River

The St Johns River is still running high with a lot of the swamp way back through the trees. In the spring run we found some clear water, Long-nosed Gar, Tilapia, Mullet and Catfish right under our kayaks. The Green Fly Orchid in bloom is growing right next to the Resurrection Fern, Spanish Moss, Quill-leaf and other Air Plants. The Turtles were taking full advantage of the sun and Great Blue Herons were out fishing along the river’s edge. We saw some Little Blue Herons in both their white and blue phase, White Ibis, Cattle Egrets, Anhingas and Cormorants which were also feeding from the generous river. The sky is now that beautiful Fall Florida blue and the old Cabbage Palms make for great Woodpecker condos. What a great day to be out paddling.

The bold and mysterious Blackwater Lake September 25, 2016

Paddling up Blackwater Creek out to the lake is always an adventure and today was no exception! Bumping over hidden logs under the coffee colored water is what makes this tour so interesting. We spotted a Barred Owl right over our heads watching us float by and then out of the dark swamp we kayaked into the sunny lake. It’s surrounded by ancient Cypress Trees each with its own personality. Some have baby Red Maples growing from their trunks and the Apple Snail's eggs are waiting there to hatch. Others are perches for the Spanish Moss, Air Plants, Orchids and Quill-leaf to grow. The lake was calm today, a hint of Fall is in the air and the sky was bluer than blue. What an awesome day to be paddling!  

A little Family Fun on the Wild and Scenic Wekiva River I

Steve, Tonya and their 3 kids came out for a Wekiva River I kayak tour with us this morning and being their first time paddling they were a little apprehensive. It wasn’t but a few minutes before they took to it like Ducks to water. Steve wanted a picture of a Florida Alligator and we got to see one sunning on a log. Thank the Lord for zoom cause he was a rather big fellow :-). There were Wood Ducks and Common Moorhens with their little chicks swimming around and Ospreys flying overhead. We also saw Limpkins, Great and Little Blue Herons and many more of our feathered friends. The Turtles were out in force and the sky was that Summer time Florida blue. It was a beautiful day to be on the water!
