Exceptionally scenic! Silver Springs, the headwaters of the Silver River, is the second largest spring in Florida. Some twists and turns of this river can reach depths of over 25 ft and it’s so clear that you can see the eel-grass swaying on the bottom. 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; Otters, many of Florida's wading birds, Red-shouldered Hawks, Barred Owls, Yellow-crowned and Black-crowned Night Herons, Anhingas, Cormorants, Raccoons and much more. See giant garfish, armored catfish, bowfin and maybe even a monkey or 12. This is a beautiful 4-5 or 6-7 hour paddle!
Level of Difficulty: Previous Experience Recommended $94.00
