Silver River (Silver Springs, FL) 

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 ;-)
Silver River I $94.00 (4-5 hours)
Silver River II $129.00 (6-7 hours)

The Critters of the St Johns River

The Limpkins were sounding off all along the St Johns River this morning while a Purple Gallinule was poking his head out of the thick vegetation. Great Blue Herons, Little Blue Herons switching from their white to blue phase, Ospreys, Great Egrets and Snowy Egrets were all out looking for a meal. We had a close encounter with a Manatee and watched a Snowy Egret riding on its back picking off the minnows that the Manatee scared up for him. What a great relationship! In the spring run where the water becomes crystal clear the fish were plentiful. We saw Longnose Gar, Mullet, Catfish, Tilapia and a few giant Grass Carp. It’s truly like kayaking over the top of an aquarium. Today was a beautiful day spent paddling with some great new friends.

The animals are showing off today!

The Manatees were hot and heavy today on the St Johns River. Blue Springs is having a banner year with a record of 440 Manatees at last count. We had a few swim under out yaks today and many others seen from a distance. We also had an awesome day of birding. Limpkins, Purple Gallinules, American Bitterns, a Barred Owl, Glossy Ibis, Bald Eagles, Osprey and a Cormorant with a successful catch of the day. The place is loaded this time of year. We saw Anhingas with their breeding green eye, Great Egrets and Snowy Egrets showing their beautiful plumes. The trees are starting to pop with a little green and the Red Maple has bloomed donning its seeds all colored in red. February 15, 2016 was a memorable day on the river! 

Merry Christmas Manatee Tour

It was a bit windy as we started our journey on the St Johns River this morning but it died down as the day went on. Around the island we got to see the first Great Blue Heron nest of the season, a Limpkin and Little Blue Heron sharing a branch and a few Snowy Egrets out feeding. The birds are starting to get their breeding plumage going and their fluff is starting to show. We paddled on toward the Manatee sanctuary to see what encounters we might have and sure enough there they were. The babies are so curious and swam right under our kayaks while the larger ones were spotted coming in and out of Blue Springs looking for breakfast. As we kayaked around the oxbow the Great Egrets were like sentinels in the marsh and in Snake Creek we spotted several small Alligators. Then Ben found the day's first Red-bellied Turtles. Back toward the Manatee spot they came out to greet us again and Molly got a quick lift from one on the way back to the launch. It was a great group to be paddling with and a great day to be on the river.
