“Kayaking”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

This was a very pleasant and pretty easy kayaking experience. We saw many alligators, turtles and a variety of birds. we heard the monkeys chattering but did not get to see them. Overall a very pleasant experience and only $21 for 2 hours but you can stay longer for $7/hour more.

“kayak Silver Springs”
Reviewed 22 February 2014

I kayaked the springs twice on a recent trip to Central Florida. The scenery is amazing and I liken the experience to a theme park attraction. Paddling through the clear springs with turtles and fish (mullet perhaps) swimming underneath would make for an enjoyable trip on it's own but when you consider all the other wildlife and vegetation it is an outstanding adventure. The first day I paddled was cloudy and I only saw a couple of alligators mixed in with all the turtles, birds and occasional monkeys. But the second day I went out was cooler (low 60's) and sunny and there were many more alligators to watch. I took my Cannon on the 2nd trip and enjoyed taking photos.
