“If you want to get away from it all and experience nature at its best, consider taking a trip by kayak. Wonderful trips on can be had on the St. John’s River and Rock Springs Run, and the guides are very knowledgeable. The 10ft alligator lounging in its natural habitat, watching as you go past is a great memory; as are the birds, turtles, fish, and huge grasshoppers! www.centralfloridakayaktours.com ”
