    What to Expect

    After checking in with your guide, you'll take part in a 15-minute orientation so you can familiarize yourself with basic paddling techniques needed for this trip up the Wekiva River. 

    After all passengers are comfortable on your boards, you'll start making your way up river. Expect to see lush vegetation featuring oak and cypress trees canopies and wildlife like turtles, birds, fish, otters, and maybe an occasional lazy gator. You'll paddle against a small current for about 1.5-miles before reaching the spring head. Once there, we'll tie-off your board and disembark at Wekiva State Park. At the state park you'll have the option to sit and relax or take a short hike around the springs. During the spring and summer months, you can take a dip in the springs with one of your instructors who will show you how to swim through the spring head.  Wekiva State park is home to wekiwa springs a first magnitude spring flowing 42 millions gallons of water daily. The area around the spring is largely undeveloped and has acres of untouched Florida Ecology. Among the wildlife of the park are coyote, rabbit, deer, gray fox, bobcat, raccoon, opossum and black bear.

    After leaving the state park, board your paddleboard and let the current take you back to Wekiva Island. Along the way, enjoy the scenery and serenity of the river. Wekiva River Adventure Paddle !

    Unbelievable couple of hours learning to stand up paddle board under the guidance and ever-amusing commentary of owner/instructor/self-confesssed-paddle-board-king-of-orlando, Ned. The highlight of our holiday - beautiful location, stunning wildlife and a refreshing dip when our confidence exceeded our abilities! Not just recommended but a must-do.
