St Johns River/Blue Springs Run Kayaking Tours 

Kayaking the St Johns River in Spring... this tour is a wildlife odyssey!















Kayaking the St Johns River there is always something new going on and the wildlife is abundant. The Air Plants and Bastard Indigos are starting to bloom, Purple Gallinules and Limpkins are chasing each other around and Bald Eagles are copping thermals with the Vultures. The Manatees are moving in and out of Blue Springs and will soon be headed back to their Summer haunt, the mighty St Johns. Swallow-tailed Kites are here now overlapping theirs with the migration of the Kingfishers. Seeing Turtles along the river out sunning with Gators is classic Central Florida. We got to see Pink-eyed Pete the old Gator that calls this area home and Little Blue Herons in their calico phase. What an awesome group to paddle with, great wildlife, weather and a special time spent kayaking the St Johns River!

One of the most beautiful waterways to kayak in all of Central Florida

















It's always a great day when we get to kayak with our friends from Finland. Rock Spring Run with a trip up Emerald Cut has got to be one of the most beautiful waterways in Central Florida and one of our favorite places to paddle. Spring has arrived and so have Teemu, Tea and family! Today we got to see Great Blue Herons fishing, Little Blue Herons in the white phase, Limpkins cracking Apple Snails, White Ibis and Great Egrets. Turtles and Alligators out basking in the sun... as were we. The Lizard Tail, Willow Trees, Spider Lily, Swamp Dogwood and Pickerel Weed are in bloom as are many others and on the way down Emerald Cut we watched 2 River Otters playing in the run. Some of the most precious things in the world come from friendships made and watching the little ones grow up with Mother Nature!   

Kayaking the Silver River makes for a really Happy Valentine's Day!

All in their brightly colored breeding plumage! The Apple Snails are laying eggs, Turtles and Gators sunning on logs and new leafs and buds on the trees. It is 80 degrees in February, an early Spring for Central Florida and a great day to be kayaking the Silver River!
