Whether you're young or old, expert or novice, a canoe or kayak trip
along the breathtaking and pristine Wekiva River in Central Florida is
an adventure you'll never forget.
One of Florida's two Federally designated "Wild and Scenic Rivers," the
Wekiva River is home to an incredible variety of wildlife including
Alligators, Great Blue Herons, Great Egrets, Limpkins, Little Blue
Herons, Tricolored Herons, Woodpeckers, Swallow-tailed Kites, Florida Black Bears, White-tailed Deer, River Otters, Fox, and numerous subtropical birds.
As you paddle slowly along with the gentle current, you'll marvel at the centuries-old oak trees that line the river's banks creating an
inviting canopy from the noon day sun. The name 'Wekiva' comes from the
Creek Indian word for "flowing water."
If wet is what you want, just immerse yourself into the crystal clear waters of the
Wekiwa Springs that pumps out an amazing 42 million gallons of cool
fresh water daily!
Wekiwa Springs State Park Nature Adventures offers several trips that
will guarantee you fulfill your fantasy "River Adventure."
