What you'll do

This tour is great for any level of stand-up paddler from beginner to expert and is great for the entire family to enjoy. We ask that you are a confident swimmer, comfortable in the water and must be fully mobile and in good physical condition to join this tour.

Our tour begins upstream against the current, paddling through lush Florida nature and emerald clear waters. The current can be swift at times but well worth the paddle as we drift back downstream to our launch location at Kings Landing. Along our journey it is possible to see deer, birds, butterflies, otters, fish, turtles and maybe even an alligator.

We will stop along the way to enjoy several scenic areas. During our leisurely breaks, cool off in the spring, snorkel the underwater world or just sit back on your board for some much-needed R&R!

During the tour, your guide will be taking photos so you can relax and enjoy your day on the water to the fullest. You will receive your digital photo link by email within 24 hours of your experience.
Other things to note
Please arrive 15 to 30 minutes prior to your launch time. You do not have to wait in line when you arrive. Just let the Kings Landing staff know you have booked a tour with Otter Paddle Orlando and they will direct you where to go. Free parking is available on the street right outside the entrance.

I signed up both my friend and I on this paddling trip to Rock Springs to spend quality time with her before I move to another state. We couldn’t have asked for a better guide for our very first Florida Springs experience! Austin was such a kind, funny, knowledgeable, insightful, and patient Paddle Lead. My friend was coming in from the gulf side and had to commute 2.5 hours to the site and ended up being an hour late to the tour. He generously accommodated us even though we were late and he had a busy schedule with back-to-back sessions until sunset that Saturday. He expertly took so many pictures of my friend and I amongst the gorgeous natural scene. The water is incredible. He showed us the phone images and we were really impressed! We couldn’t say enough Thank-You’s to Austin and the Otter Paddle Company for the beautiful memories.

This was a truly magical experience! The location is unbeatable, super gorgeous the whole way. The paddling was never more challenging than I felt I could handle. Craig was very nice and shared some fun stories with us of animal sightings from previous tours (Ask about the otter!) . I would definitely recommend this experience, regardless of paddle board experience! The only downside was that even though we went on a Monday there were a fair amount of people on the river, we still had moments of isolation, but don't expect a total escape. Craig also took a ton of photos of me and my partner paddling, which was really kind and a total bonus I wasn't expecting!

We loved this! They were friendly and made the experience enjoyable. The location is beautiful and stand up paddle boarding is great! We would love to do again.

This experience is very worth the price and I highly recommend it to anyone visiting the area. Going on the early tour was very nice because we were the only ones on the creek. It's a beautiful location and Craig & Rachelle take pictures for you along the way so you can solely focus on the ride. It was an amazing relaxing time.
