St Johns River/Blue Springs Run Kayaking Tours 

Kayaking with the Manatees

The Manatees are starting to move into the warmer waters of the river now and our mission was to see if we could find a few. As we kayaked around the island it sounded like we were paddling in a jungle. The Limpkins were calling to each other and right off the bat we found an American Bittern, Snowy Egrets, Little Blue Herons and a Purple Gallinule. On the river’s edge there was a nice sized Alligator sunning and the Great Blue Herons are building their nests way up high in the Cypress Trees. Our winter resident Bald Eagle is here now too. He is the sentinel that watches over the river. Once we got down to Blue Springs we saw some Manatees swimming in the clear waters of the spring run and then it was game on! A momma and her baby came out and swam right under our kayaks. A few of the teenagers came out to play and started pushing our kayaks around with their noses. It is so exhilarating to have such a gentle creature interact with us like that. It’s like we become their play toys. Kayaking in the narrows of Snake Creek we found a Limpkin family including 3 chicks, Red-bellied Turtles and a few more Alligators out sunning. Some of the best movies we’ve ever seen were produced by Mother Nature! #KayakingWithKenny

Today was the perfect day for a kayak tour on Rock Springs Run. We could hear the wind howling in the tree tops as we coasted along but never really felt it. The best part of this cold snap that was headed our way was the wildlife! Red-bellied and River Cooter Turtles were perched on the logs warming themselves in the sun, there must have been 40 – 50 Great Egrets hanging out in the old Oak tree and in the clear water we could see the Eel-grass flowing with the current and Redear Sunfish darting under our kayaks. We basically had the whole river to ourselves… life is good! #KayakingWithKenny

Kayaking in Eustis, FL: It's nice to be paddling Blackwater Lake again

For 8 weeks Blackwater Lake was off limits due to Hurricane Irma. So being able to kayak Blackwater Lake again is a welcome sight! Kayaking the half mile creek to the lake is just the entry way to a "step back in time". The Cypress Trees that live here are untouched by man. They escaped the loggers of the late 1800s. Home to several air plants, wild Florida Orchids, Quill-leaf and Spanish Moss they create a beautiful landscape. These pics are a blend of some that Pat, Rod and Kenny took. They tell the story of our kayak tour of Blackwater Lake. Thanks for sharing your pics with us Pat! #KayakingWithKenny

Our first sighting for 2017 kayaking with the Manatees!

We started our kayak tour yesterday with no expectations of any Manatee sightings. As we cruised around the island we found Limpkins, Anhingas, Great Blue and Little Blue Herons, Great and Snowy Egrets and some White Ibis. So as far as bird sightings we were off to a good start. Then we headed toward Blue Springs and saw a little Gator sunning himself on a log and some Turtles doing the same. The St Johns River has just now opened back up from Hurricane Irma flooding and we were happy to be paddling there again. When we reached Blue Springs to our surprise the water was clear and there were 5 or 6 Manatees hanging out. We had a few good Manatee encounters with them swimming under our kayaks and we were ecstatic. Back in Snake Creek the river was high enough to paddle through the trees and since that’s such a rare thing to be able to do we ventured further. On the way back to the boat launch we caught a good look at one of the biggest Alligators I’ve ever seen. He was sunning on the bank and was every bit of 12 feet long. As we got ready for a group photo we noticed Mac had a small lizard that had hitched a ride on his hat. Mother Nature and her critters are funny things! It was a great day spent with a great group of paddlers and once again we’re kayaking with the Manatees. #KayakingWithKenny
