Paddle Through Ocala National Forest

Come paddle the natural wonders of Florida. Immerse yourself in the magic of this subtropical wonderland. Steeped in history and legend, these clear-flowing springs will draw you back time and time again.

This trip is geared to the entry-level sea kayaker, but it’s fun for all levels. Our kayaks transport us gently along springs and rivers in the heart of Ocala National Forest. Swim, snorkel, and play in pure rejuvenating water bursting from the aquifer.

The leaders make every reasonable effort to meet the goals outlined in the itinerary. Please keep in mind that weather or other conditions beyond our control may cause us to modify the itinerary in order to ensure the safety and well being of the group.

We begin at a place that has inspired all who have set foot or dreamed of riches. Prehistoric traces of the early inhabitants are still being found. Authors and orange growers found this place bounded by Lake George, St Johns, and the Ocklawaha River ideal.

Each day, we venture onto a new and unique waterway! Swim, snorkel, and play in the crystal-clear springs. Glide gently along the tannic water deep in the forest interior. Abundant wildlife greets us around each bend and with every stroke of the paddle. This is the best way to see the “real Florida.”
