We loved spending the day kayaking so much! We saw about four manatees which was amazing. The water is crystal clear and feels amazing when you jump in. We stayed in Tampa and drove about an hour to do this. Well worth it! I'd recommend...More

Beautiful day to kayak up and down the beautiful river and springs! We enjoyed jumping out of trees and picnicking while on our trip.

Located across a park, the people managing the rental are very nice. On the expensive side but you can use it the kayaks until 5:00 PM. There is a little restroom and a restaurant (the upper deck) next door for when you are done.

Same price and they don't tell you that you have to paddle up the river. When we asked they said " we haven't done that in 5 and 1/2 months" like we were suppose to know that. No worth it. Go to the state park!

We rented two for 35 each (they were tandem kayaks, I am not sure if the single ones are cheaper..)
