Florida Wildlife Guided Kayak Eco-Tour 

Blue Spring, SP, St Johns River, Orlando, Orange City

Florida Wildlife Kayaking Tour

With this tour you will get to see a variety of birds and possibly bald eagles or some Manatees feeding in the river. You're certainly see a few turtles and maybe an alligator or three. Snake Creek is one of the most tranquil kayaking runs in this area. This tour also includes paddle up into the Spring Head and walking tour of Blue Springs. Every tour is a new and fresh experience!

Scheduled tours go out on daily at 9:00am.

Other hours available upon special request.

Our tour will give you a 3.5+ hour tour to view the natural surrounding of the St. Johns River and Blue Spring Florida State Park in Orange City, Fl. 

 

This is nature so there are no guarantees in what wildlife you will encounter on this tour. On rare occasions we get lucky and the Manatee's will hang out with us in the viewing area. On warmer days the Manatee tend to be focused on getting into the river to feed. No matter what,  it's always our goal to provide you with the highest quality tour available. 

Private Tours are also available on request. Call for pricing.

Our guides will meet you at the French Avenue kayak launch at the end of French Ave just passed the State Park entrance.
