Say hello to one of the most beautiful rivers Florida has to offer. The Weeki Wachee River has an average flow rate of 112 million gallons of crystal clear spring water per day, year round water temperatures ranging from 72F to 74F, and frequent manatee visitors. We feel pretty safe saying this river defines the definition of paradise.

Kayakers depart from the launch point. Paddle up the river as far as you’d like to explore. When You’re finished, paddle back down to where you started.

The river is filled with a number of animals that call Weeki Wachee River home. Manatees frequent the river, as do a number of fish, birds, and other mammals. Kayakers have reported seeing deer, herons, turtles, otters, and Florida’s favorite beast, the raccoon!

Life Jacket’s Paddles, and Dry Sacks are provided.

Due to the high volume of guests, reservations are always recommended. Show ups are welcome, but we cannot guarantee you a spot.
