Clear kayak tour through Rock Springs
We'll get you checked in right when you arrive to allow for the most possible time on the water! Once you're all checked in, we'll give some basic paddle instructions and information about the tour ahead. We'll get you loaded up into your clear kayak and off we go! The paddle will last about 2 to 2.5 hours depending on the speed of our group and any wildlife we may see along the way. We will be sure to take plenty of pictures and give some awesome unique facts about the area on our several picturesque stopping points! There will even be a couple chances for you to get out and enjoy the refreshing Spring water! The first half of the paddle will be upstream towards the headspring of Rock Springs (a slight workout, but don't worry we take breaks) and the second half will be a gentle coast back to our launch point. Be ready for lots of great local nature and wildlife along the way! Other things to note The $10 per boat launch fee is included in the price. AirBnB does not collect taxes but we owe taxes so that has been included in the price as well! Check out our website for additional times.
Emerald Cut Rock Springs Paddle Board Adventure
Named for its crystal clear water, the Emerald Cut section of Rock Springs Run winds through sections of lush jungle-like nature, breathtaking emerald water and sandy bottom beneath your paddle as you explore this tropical oasis in in the middle of Central Florida. Rock Springs Run is one of two designated Wild and Scenic Rivers in the state of Florida, part of the complex ecological system of the Wekiva River Basin. This spring fed river supports a myriad of bird and wildlife watching opportunities to include river otters, deer, turtles and maybe even an alligator along the way. The first half of the tour we begin paddling upstream against the current, paddling over and under trees and through the twists and turns of the river until we reach the bridge at Kelly Park. The second half of the tour, we will sit back and go with the flow as the current takes us back to the launch point. Please allow 30 minutes for check-in. 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, must be fully mobile and in good physical condition to join this tour. Stand up paddle boarding is a low-impact, full body workout and is a great way to get outside to enjoy nature and have some fun!
Horseback Trail Ride Natural Ecosystems
Your experience begins with a 10 minute introductory lesson on how to behave around a horse, how mount a horse, and how to ride. We then embark on an exclusive access 70 minute trail ride to the Lake Proctor Wilderness area and a chance to explore undeveloped Florida. We’ll venture through various ecosystems that make up the 475 acre Lake Proctor Wilderness area. Pine scrub, pine flatwoods, sandhill and bayhead swamps covered all of Central Florida when Conquistadors and settlers explored these lands long before Disney. Each is a distinct eco system, and change before your eyes as thick palmettos and tall pines lead into sprawling oaks heavy with Spanish Moss and resurrection ferns. Trails bright with lichens and moss give way to brackish waters and rich black mud. As we loop back toward home, keep an eye out for bald eagles, sandhill cranes, pileated woodpeckers, a gopher tortoise, and maybe even a gator. Other things to note There is a weight limit of 215. No previous horseback riding experience is required. Any allergies to insects, horses, grass or in general must be disclosed.
