Florida Kayak & Canoe Rentals
Our sister companies Wekiva Outfitters and Econ Outfitters offer a fleet of watercraft rentals to explore the waterways of the Econlockhatchee River, Wekiva River, and St. Johns River. We bring your rental to a designated drop-off location of your choice.
The Econlockhatchee River
Flowing past unmarried forests, including the Little Big Econ State Forest, see a diverse array of wildlife, including sandhill cranes, bald eagles, ospreys, hawks, wading birds, wood storks, roseate spoonbills, waterfowl, shorebirds, deer, turkeys, and sometimes black bears.
The Muscogee name for the river means “River of Many Mounds,” named for the multitude of Indian mounds found along this waterway. The second largest tributary of the storied St. Johns River, this delightful black water stream is narrow in places and canopied by cypress and Sabal palm.

Beginning just north of Kelly Park in Apopka, crystal-clear Rock Springs Run winds its way swiftly downstream about 8 miles to join the spring run flowing out of Wekiwa Springs State Park, thus creating the Wekiva River. The Wekiva River (note spelling difference for the state park and river) continues north approximately 15 miles to the St. Johns River.
A mixture of swift and placid water offers a frequent change of pace. Traveling through sand pine scrub, pine flat woods, hammocks and swamps, see a variety of wildlife, including river otters and sometimes black bears. Numerous islands, tributaries and lagoons provide opportunities for side trips and camping.
Ages: All ages
Duration: 6-10 hours
