Silver River Kayak Tour
The Silver River is a beautiful, crystal clear river for its entire length and a prime example of pristine Florida. It has a history that has left it famous, yet unscathed... twenty-four movies have been filmed there. The best known are the Tarzan movies of the 1930s and 1940s, and some of the original James Bond movies starring Sean Connery. Along the run you can still see wild Rhesus monkeys left from the 'Tarzan' days as well as a ship that was sunk for one of the Bond movies.
This is a beautiful and wild river that originates from clear springs that are now surrounded by a theme park called Silver Springs. On this exciting trip we will paddle up the Silver River, enjoy a snack from our kayaks along the way,then finish with a short paddle into the theme park. Then, after a bit of exploration at the spring head, we allow the gentle current to give us an easy paddle back to the launch site. This is an all day trip for most groups beginning around 10:30AM and finishing around 4:00 PM. On special nights we can arrange to paddle up the river in the daylight and return under the light of a full moon, an awesome experience!
